Passing Drill – Pass the Ball Successfully Into the Open Space

The right timing between players often decides wether a play can be succesfull or not, especially when attacking. To learn this, it is necessary that players develop a sense for running speed, optimal pass strength, good communication between each other and understanding running paths. The following passing drill is perfect to train these aspects!

Passing Drill – Endless Form Direct Play-8

In this endless form for 7 to 9 players, it’s especially about good timing from passer A to receiver B. Good communication (eye contact) is necessary for this, so that the receiver can pass the ball directly to player C while sprinting.

Quick position changes and precise passes are important for the endless form to proceed without pauses. This passing exercise is very suitable as a warm-up.
