At least one more player must start behind players A, B, C and D.
A passes to B and then overlaps him. B passes with his first touch for A to run on to. A passes to D and the joins the queue. E starts the same sequence with F and G in the other direction to H.
Players B and C and their partners F & G swap positions with their parners after each sequence.
Start by running the drill slowly and then speed up. The receiver should always make a small, dynamic dummy run away from or to the side of the ball before receiving the ball. The drill can be extremely tiring when conducted quickly with only eight players.
– Under time pressure, this drill is very game realistic.
– The reciever should call for the ball.
– Pass and run timing is important
– The passes should take playce simultaneously.
– Players often run faster than their pass.
– Good pass precision ensuresthe balls don’t collide.
