Soccer drill procedure

The "neat short passing game" is a familiar name for short distance passes. These short passes are precisely what we want to practice now. A short pass is executed quickly, without a long ball control, to surprise the enemy. The drill sequence is easy to understand and quick to implement without any tool. You only need enough balls.


In a triangle, each player has a ball. The "orange" player runs towards the first player in the triangle. After a one-two (played as a short pass), it's off to the next player in the triangle. And on and on!

The position of the orange player can also be occupied two or three times. Then, each player turns once around the triangle and rejoins at the end of the group. Do not forget to exchange the players in the triangle after some time.


- Always train using both shooting legs!
