Passing with three

  • Organisation

    Materials: balls, cones

  • Process

    The players build groups of three each. Each group with two balls and two cones. The groups spread across the field and set up the cones with a distance of around 15m. Two players, one with a ball, take the position at the cones, the other one in the middle between them. On command of the coach Player C moves 1-2m towards the player with ball (A).

    Player A plays a pass on the ground (1). Player C lays the ball off for player A (2) and turns in the other direction towards player B.

    Player A plays a direct pass to player B (3). This player passes on the ground to player C again, and so on
