Vertical Pass

  • Organisation

    8 cones are laid out as shown. The cone with two players is the starting position.

  • Process

    Player A starts by passing the ball through the cone goal. Player B turns with the ball and dribbles at speed to the next cone. B then plays a short pass to C. A takes up the position of B ad B goes between the cone goal. The same passing sequence then continues (C + D).

  • Tip

    8 cones.

    - The player waiting for the ball starts moving towards the ball as the ball is passed.

    - The player passing the ball must orientate his running speed to the speed of the ball.

    - The standing leg is often too far away from the ball and/or the player leans back.

    - Timing of the pass is important.

    - Players often run faster than they pass.

    - Demand good strength of pass and pass precision.

    - Good speed dribbling with short steps. The ball shouldn't be farther than 50cm away from the foot.
