This is a good soccer passing drill that is like a game as well, especailly for players in the U16 age level.  Players are split up into groups of six and within those groups they are divided into three teams of two.  Each group will play in a field defined by four cones that are about 20 yards apart arranged in a square.  One team of two is inside the square and the other two teams are on the outside.  The teammates should be placed on opposite sides of the square.  One player on the outside starts with the ball.  The goal is to pass the ball between the two players in the middle to their teammate on the other side.  The players in the middle are trying to intercept the passes.  Once they intercept the balls and gain control, the team who made the mistake has to switch with the team in the middle.  Teams get a point every time they complete a pass to their teammate by making a pass between the players in the middle.  The players on the outside have to use each other by making quick passes in order to spread out the players in the middle.  Players on the outside will have to pass to the other team on the outside if the pass to their teammate is not available.
