Session Detail
WARM UP:
Passing
on the
Move
Exercise
Objective
Passing and receiving the ball in motion.
Set out a 40x40 playing area.
Organisation
Players are put into pairs with one ball each. Spread the pairs out along one side of the grid.
Player 1 passes the ball to player 2 who starts about 5 yards away. After making the starting pass, player 1
moves towards player 2 who lays the ball back to player 1, who then runs backwards another 5 yards to keep a
similar distance from the start. Both players continue moving across the grid to the opposite side. When the pair
reach the end of the grid they come back in their new positions.
Progression
Coaching
Points
1 of 4
Approach to the ball - Line up with where the ball is going
Type of pass: Inside push pass, driven pass or lofted pass
Inside push pass - make L shape with non-kicking foot being right up next to the ball and kicking foot coming
through as an “L”
Follow through on pass and use body to generate power
Focus on weight and accuracy of pass, both are very important

TECHNIQUE
WITH
PASSIVE
PRESSURE:
Playing
Through
Zones
Exercise
Objective
Penetrative passing
Organisation
Mark out a 45x30 area with three divided sections of equal width.
Station players as shown in the picture so that you have two defenders, two midfielders and one striker in the
appropriate sections. Each team passes to keep possession and play the ball through the zones. Each pass
must enter a new zone and can go backwards or forwards but cannot jump from the defending zone to
attacking zone in one pass. Develop the exercise by allowing players to follow their pass into the next zone and
therefore creating ‘numbers up’ in the middle zone and ‘even numbers’ in the end zones.
Progression
Make simple passing and control look easy - Concentration
Coaching
Points

Team mates need to create passing options using width and depth on the field away from defenders
Correct passing technique is important for accuracy and weight of each pass.
Players have to make the correct option, do not pass to somebody who has limited time.
Look for combination passing.
