Effective execution of Set Play from the Centre Pass - Intermediate

Master a number of set plays focusing on getting the ball out from a centre pass, through the second phase and into a position to shoot.

Preview Plan


  • The WA and GA will start in a stacked position, so one player will be on the line (GA in this example) and the other player approximately 1-2 meters directly behind (WA)
  • Both the WA and GA will offer for the centre pass, however the player on the line (GA) will lead the movement
  • If the GA chooses to go right, the WA must go in the opposite direction, so they would go left as shown
  • The WA receives the ball from the C
  • Once the WA has received the ball the GS will time their movement and drive out of the circle at an angle to receive the ball from the WA
  • The GS will then do a 'give-and-go' with the C, who would have drive to the top of the circle and landed circle edge
  • The GS will receive the ball from the C and can put up a shot
  • The GA can receive the ball from the GS under the post 


Coaching points

  • The WA and GA must ensure there is enough room between them in the stacked position or else the defenders can easily block them in
  • The direction the GA largely depends on their defender - if their defender is marking on their left side, the GA would step across the GD to cut them off and drive out right - this would leave the WA going left
  • The GS must drive out at a good angle (not flat, nor too steep) to receive the ball
  • The GS must do a quick pass to the C and push off straight away to drive into the circle and receive the ball back
  • The C should try to receive the ball on the circle edge - therefore not allowing a 3ft marker to set up and making the pass into the circle easier
  • The GA must time their movement so they do not enter the circle too early, bringing their defender with them - as the GS has created their own space and should have an open circle to drive back into
