Soccer training – Passing - Ladder

easy Sports-Graphics 5.0

Soccer drill procedure

We climb towards the goal as if on a ladder. Depending on the distances, a short passing game could be implemented; wide passes and the training of the ball control can also be implemented here. The passing lanes are easily explained, but their execution is more difficult. The players should always approach the pass and quickly and precisely pass it on to the next position.


We have place three cones on the left side and two on the right side. The players will be stationed behind the cones, always close to the goal. The sequence will start at the cones that are located the farthest from the goal. The first pass will be vertical and to the next cone, then diagonally and slightly back towards the next position. From there the pass will be again diagonally made and again towards the other side. The last receiver of the pass will shoot to the goal. The players always switch to the next position, please refer to the animation.


- Only direct passing game!
- Inverted sequence
