3 Great Double Square Drills for Accurate Passing

Last updated:

Coaches often look for exercises that are versatile and easy to set up. The double square fulfills these requirements and is extremely versatile. It is particularly suitable as a complex passing and combination exercise during the warm-up.

The following 3 exercises were taken from the new eBook “Tiqui Taca – One Touch – 45 Variations in the Double Square” from Peter Schreiner!
