Different Styles of Passing Patterns

  • Organisation

    • 6 cones

    The structure of the drill is as shown in the graphic.

    Spacing of the cones should be adjusted to the level of play (U14-U19).

  • Process

    Player A passes to player B, who lays it off and player A then passes to player C.

    Player C dribbles to the cone and lines up at the back.

    Players always follow their pass.

    Player A plays alternately after laying the ball off with players C and D.


    Players C and D can use a slalom dribbling or a body feint.

    Player A passes to player C, who then leaves it for player B.

    Player B then plays into the run of player C.

  • Tip

    Coaching Points:

    • Pass of player A should be played into the outside foot of player B

    • Body feint, sharp passing, use both feet to pass
