Dealing with the back pass

Deal with the back pass with composure and skill to be an outlet for an under pressure defence and clear your lines. But it’s not always as simple as it seems… work on coping with even the trickiest of passes!

Preview Plan


  • Set up 2 squares beside each ther with a goalkeeper in each square.
  • 2 servers set up opposite each square with a ball each.
  • Goalkeepers to start at the back of their square and come to the front of the square to drop back again and receive a ball passed along the ground from the server opposite. 
  • One touch on the ball to take the ball out of the side of the square and then pass the ball diagonally, to the other server. 
  • Goalkeepers to then switch over to the other square. 
  • Repeat several times before switching over the goalkeepers working and servers.

Coaching points

  • This is a good goalkeepers warmup drill. 
  • Goalkeeper to take the ball out the side of the square with the first touch and a pass with the second touch.
