Football Drill Demonstration


Players number themselves from one-eight (or as many numbers as there are players).

Players must then pass in numerical order.

Although they can attempt to memorise the passing order it's far more beneficial if the players call out and communicate to one another.

So once player two has the ball, player 3 should be calling the receive the pass.

Coaching points

Good communication - quick and confident passing.


Once players have had a few goes you can then open the two areas into one so that players must now continue to pass in numerical order whilst avoiding the other team.
