Aerial Passing - Switch it like Beckham
Rating: 4
from 3 members ratings

Being able to play a lofted pass in football is only half the battle - you need to be able to control it too!

That's why this plan looks at when players should use an aerial pass in a match and gives them plenty of time to practice this skill, both with and without pressure from a defender.

What's in the Session?

To get your players switching like Beckham we open this session with a 1-2 Passing warm-up, promoting heads up, fast-feet football before moving onto passing over distance and avoiding the 'Dead Zone' before finishing with a fun three-team conditioned game.

Not great for most of my kids - lack of ability to lift the ball that far
