This passing drill introduces the concept of wall passes and give and gos into game play. The drill requires only one soccer ball, three layers, and one coach. Set up the two lines of players facing each other about 20 yards apart. There should also be a boundary marked out by cones along the side opposite from the coach. The overall goal for the offensive player is to get to the other line with possession of the ball.
The drill runs as follows:
- the defensive player passes the ball to the offensive player.
- the offensive player receives the ball and dribbles towards the defender
- the defender challenges the offenisve player
- the offensive player can use the coach for a wall pass or dribble around the defender
The offensive player should learn to use deception to try and get the defender to cheat one way or the other. The offensive players need to react to the defenders and make a quick decision with the ball.
