Football Drill Demonstration

Description

Set up as shown with 2 players and 1 ball between the two.

The area should be a 4x4 diamond, however the shape and size can be modified depending on the level of your players and the main aspect movement to receive that you want to achieve.

Play begins with the internal player making movement to receive the ball and then exiting the diamond. Once they exit the diamond the player on the far end makes a pass into the middle player who controls and passes back.

The sequence is repeated with the middle player making a new movement to receive on a different side of the diamond.

Coaching points

Work on good firm passes that will allow the first touch of the players to be tested and improved.

Player in the middle should be ready and 'on their toes'.

They should make movement to feint as if going to leave out of one side before getting out of another side.

The passes should be played quickly, taking 1 and 2 touch maximum.
