Variable Passing with Changing Positions I

  • Organisation

    6 players take up their positions at the corners of the box. Two cones are occupied by three players. All of these players have a ball.

  • Process

    Players A + C (in possession) pass at the same time to B and D opposite and follow their passes. Players B and D pass diagonally and take up the positions from A & C. The vertical passes should be played and then the diagonal passes.

  • Tip

    - 4 cones.

    - The player should watch the whole field so as not to miss the next pass.

    - The standing foot should be 30-40cm to the side of the ball, in line with the ball.

    - When passing with the instep, the toes should point upwards, the ankle joint should be tensed and the upper body slightly leant over the ball.

    - Stand on the balls of your feet, the passing foot should be slightly raised to strike the ball in the middle. Bring your body over the ball and don't lean back. (Ball control is achieved using the same technique).

    - The foot should follow through after striking the ball.

    - Movement of the arms is important: When passing with the right instep the left arm should cross to the right hip; when passing with the left instep the right arm should cross to the left hip.

    - The player can lean back slightly when passing with the outstep.

    - When passing with the ball of the foot, the player approaches the ball diagonally with his body slightly side onwards to the ball.
