Positioning: Cone Goals und Killer Passes in Behind

  • Organisation

    • Mark a field from the halfway line to the edge of the penalty box
    • Create many small cone goals (red)
    • Split players into 2 teams
  • Process

    • Teams play a possession-orientated style
    • If a pass through the mini-goal reaches the teammate, the team earn a point
    • OR: A team plays 15 passes in a row and will also earn a point


    • The pass through the small cone goal needs to be a little 1-2 combination
  • Tip

    Coaching Points:

    • Position many players around and near the cone goals in order to play many passes and combinations

    • If the opponent defends the targets well, switch the point of attack quickly and often
