3 vs. 1 Speed Passing Soccer Drill

3 vs. 1 Speed Passing Soccer Drill


  • In each grid have three attackers, and a line of three defenders.
  • When the coach starts the game, the first defender plays a ball to the furthest away attacker, and runs into the grid to try and get it back. The attackers try to see how many passes they can link up until the defender gets the ball and dribbles outside the grid, or the ball goes out of bounds.
  • Once the ball is out a new ball is immediately played in and the game restarts with a new defender. Play for two minutes, and then rotate the defenders and attackers
  • Make grid smaller or larger depending on ability of players.

Coaching Points

  • Locking your ankle to pass and receive.
  • Preparation touch. Is your first touch with the ball setting you up for a quick second touch? Try to take your first touch so that you can open your hips to the field and see everything.
  • Angles of support. How are the teammates moving off the ball to provide options of support?
