Football: Run the Ball

Excellent site with easy to navigate pages.
Lawrence

DESCRIPTION

One ball per group of 4.

Player 1 dribbles the ball to the second line, stopping the ball on the second line with the sole of their foot.

Player 1 then passes the ball to player 3 and follows their pass to join player 4 on the end line.

Player 3 dribbles to the second line in the other direction and repeats the routine. Continue until players return to their original starting positions.

COACHING POINTS

The first touch should push the ball 2-3 feet in front of the receiver. Might need 2 touches at first: 1 to stop the ball or control the pass and the second to get the ball out in front.

Head up between touches.

Cover the ground as quickly as possible.
