Purpose is to replicate offloading skills in a tackle.

  • Look for the receiver
  • Keep a straight arm
  • Push the hand and arm on an upwards direction to give accuracy



Continue with the same passing method in lines of 4. Players jog forwards to pass the ball and then jog backwards after passing to be ready to receive.

When passing reaches the opposite end, change direction.
