1v1 (2v2) after passing for volleying

  • Organisation

    Two teams. Every team is divided on pairs. One player from the pair has the ball. 

    One usual goal with GK; two small goals.

  • Process

    Two players from different teams sprint forward at the same time. The Coach shows the colour (blue or red cone). It means that the player with the ball from the proper cone (blue on image) executes the volleying passing to his teammate, who tries to score. The player from another team must challenge and steal the ball. If he is successful, he must score to any of two small goals.

    Progression: 2v2 game after passing

  • Tip

    Two series with changing the sides; players in pair change their places after each repetition.


  • Field size

    30x30 m

  • Cone margins

    8 m between the players without the ball;

    the servers settle on the comfortable distance to execute the passing for volleying
