Passing with Overlapping in a Diamond

  • Organisation

    A cross or diamond is formed using 4 cones. One players starts at cones I + II, three players start at cone III and two players start at cone II.

    There is a ball at cones II + III. (4a) Various 1 Dribbling (4b) Various 2 Passing

  • Process

    Player B plays a one-two with player A, controls the ball and the dribbles towards C. Player A overlaps and gives the option of the pass.

    Player B now has the option of taking on player C or to pass to player A into space for A to run onto.

    C then moves to give the option of another one-two with D and now they try to taek on player F. After the lay off to palyer D, C overlaps D.

    The drill is first played to cone I, then cone II and then cones IV and/or III.

  • Tip

    - 4 cones.

    - This passing drill is very intensive and tiring and requires a large amount of game intelligence.

    - Switching the play to the other side, missing out the midfield

    - A good touch and passing technique is essential.

    - The standing leg is sometimes too far away from the ball and some players lean back too much.

    - Demand good strength of pass and pass precision.

    - Pass precision is more important than pass speed.

    - Concentration must be held at all times.

    - Anticipation, awareness, reaction, speed of thought and movement with and without the ball are continuously required.

    - The aims of this drill are switching from offense to defense, crossing the middle zone quickly and the setting up of new passing situations.
