Quick passing soccer game

This is a very simple but very effective way to practise quick passing and supporting play with older or more experienced players.

Experience: intermediate.

Set-up: Two teams of four in an area 30 yards long by 20 yards wide, marked with flat cones.

How to play:
  • Each team has two players in the inside of the playing area and a player at each end as a target.
  • The objective is to get the ball from one target player to the next without losing possession.
  • The two teams play in two different directions. One team plays north to south, the other east to west.
  • Make the game competitive by awarding a point for each successful play. First to five points wins.

Tip: set up several playing areas next to each other and rotate the teams so that all the teams play each once. Then add up the scores to decide an overall winner.
