U6 Passing Drills

DRILL P-1: Two Touch Partner Passing

Objective:

To develop individual ability to receive a pass and to make a return pass with proper technique

Setup:

·         Line up players on mid line with a partner about 5” to 8” away

·         One ball per couple

Basic Activity:
  1. Players pass the ball using the inside of their foot with their feet in a “L” position to their partner. Their partner stops the ball by making a wedge with their foot and “TRAPPING” the ball. They then pass it back.
  2. When receiving the ball using the bottom part of the foot to "trap" the ball.
Advance Activity:
  1. Players pass the ball using the outside of their foot with their fppt or top of foot, i.e. "laces".
  2. When receiving the ball using the inside of the foot to "catch" the ball.
Variations:
  1. Passing competitions – count how many passes within a certain time frame (30 – 60 seconds), set up cones about a yard apart and have players count how many times they can pass without hitting or going outside the cones.
  2. Stipulate feet – only right foot or only left
Coaching Considerations:

When passing, the motion should come from the hip and not the knee. Stress using the inside of the foot and not the toe. “JUST SAY NO TO THE TOE”

When trapping a pass, stress keeping their body in front of the ball and not allowing it to get past them. They do not need to execute a perfect trap when receiving the ball, but do need to keep it in front of them.

DRILL P-2: Two-Touch Passing in Circle

Objective:

To get players to control the ball passed to them and then to be able to pass it on, and to communicate with their teammates.

Setup:
  1. Place kids in a circle about 10’ to 12’ in diameter
  2. One ball
Basic Activity:

Players call out a teammates name and then pass the ball using the inside of their foot with their feet in a “L” position. The teammate stops the ball by making a wedge with their foot and “TRAPPING” the ball. They then pass it back.

Coaching Considerations:
  • Keep the kids apart as they will have a tendency to drift together.
  • Work on keeping the feet in the "L" shape and passing from the hips.
