Blind Side Runs

Set Up:

To begin the drill, Player 1 fakes a pass towards Player 3, but plays square to Player 2 instead. Player 3 sprints in behind the mannequins to receive the pass from Player 2, makes a return pass to Player 2, and then runs around the far mannequin. As Player 3 gets on the blind side of the mannequins again, Player 2 fakes to him, and then passes to Player 1. Player 3 holds his run so that he can time the blind side run behind the mannequin and receive the pass from Player 1. Player 3 then passes to Player 4 for the re-start.

Players making the blind side runs stay in that line. Players in the two passing lines switch lines with each turn. So groups of three will remain together during the drill. A new group of players rotates to the line making the blind side run every five minutes.

Coaching Points:

1.  Timing the Run – Watch the combination develop. Be prepared to hold if a poor touch is made.

2.  Speed of Play – Sprint into the open space, don’t jog.  

3.  Communication –  When it’s time, show yourself and call for the ball.


1.  Add a third passing line to the drill to the left of Player 2 for more passing options.
