DESCRIPTION

Split players into pairs with 1 ball between them and set up as diagram (half a third each if available).

Black C is the feeder and has the ball. The white C is the worker and will be working for 2 minutes and will then swap roles with the black C.

  1. The worker starts in the corner - side steps the horizontal lines then changes pace and direction, while sprinting the vertical lines.
  2. The worker then heads towards the feeder to receive a pass when the feeder wishes to put the ball in.
  3. The worker then sprints back to the corner changes pace and direction back to a side step then repeats around the whole grid creating a star shape.

The worker works for 2 minutes trying to complete as many circuits of the star as possible in the 2 minutes.

The feeder can only pass the ball to the worker when they are driving forwards to start with.

COACHING POINTS

The worker needs to ensure that they push off their outside foot to change pace and direction when driving towards the feeder.

The worker needs to have their head up and on their toes at all times ready to receive the ball. Keeping their eye on the ball.

The feeder needs to ensure that they don't pass the ball to early or too late (worker should not be stood still waiting for the ball). Timing and accuracy of the pass is paramount.

PROGRESSION

For the less advanced:

  • Shorter distance between cones and feeder to worker
  • Change some sprints to jogs

For the more advanced:

  • Larger distance between cones and from feeder to worker
