Defensive Passing - Moving the ball around the back

Rating: 3
from 2 members ratings

This session has been designed to help the team to practice positional play and improve their ability to patiently pass the ball around the back with confidence.

Quite often you'll see with teams that their defence treats the ball like a hot potato - trying to get rid of it as quickly as possible - hitting it aimlessly up field, often to the delight of their opposition!

However, if you teach your players to pass the ball around the back you can help your team to maintain possession, frustrate your opponent and pick out a better pass to a player further up-field.

Passing with Purpose (Advanced) - in this pack:


Finding space to maintain possession

Improve your players' ability to find space in which to receive the ball by looking for the give and go, losing your marker and by calling for the ball.


Introducing 2 vs 1 situations

Improve your players' ability to run with the ball under pressure and play the smart pass to a team-mate.


Passing on the move - thinking about self-pass

Can your players pass the ball first time whilst on the move? This Session encourages players to look up, pick out a pass and weight their passes.


Passing on time!

Stop your players holding on to the ball for too long - Don't let them miss their opportunity to pass.


Passing while moving and attacking down the left

Keep possession by using the reverse turn to pick out your supporting players.


Switch the ball to create Forward Space

Like moths to a light players are often drawn to the ball. Sometimes in order to create space players should look to sweep and switch the ball across the pitch to find new space!
