Players need to be confident when carrying the ball from either side of the pitch and passing on the move, especially with the self-pass rule.
If players look uncomfortable carrying the ball it's likely their opponents will spot their weaker side and will often deliberately force them onto it, as they know they won't be able to make an effective pass when running from either their left or right-hand.
What's in the Session?
To ensure this doesn't happen to your players this session aims to make sure your players are comfortable and confident when passing from either side.
To get your players switching the ball from left to right and right to left this session starts with a simple slalom warm up. We then progress this with three pass and move exercises, before finishing with a fun conditioned game, designed to get your players running with the ball.
Get your players taking up forward positions on the pitch and overlapping to offer extra attacking options!
Teach your players that Passing and Receiving is the fastest way to progress the ball up the pitch!
Feint and run with the ball up field or pass to a team-mate? That's what we work on in this decision-making session!
Carry the ball with confidence and run at goal! Teach your players to switch the ball and feed the lines to get the ball up the pitch!
