Objective: To improve passing, support off the ball, teamwork and communication.
Age group: U8s to U12s.
Set up: Divide your players into teams of four – a goalkeeper and three outfield players.
Two teams play football in a 30×20 yards area with one condition: All three outfield players have to touch the ball before a goal is scored.
All for one and one for all!
Play for a set time or until one team scores X goals.
Coaching notes: The three outfield players have to touch the ball without a player from the other team touching it. If the ball is intercepted, the sequence has to start again.
Variation: Award a bonus ‘goal’ for five or more consecutive passes.
