A Passing and Overlap Exercise

Welcome to the FineSoccer Drills Newsletter. Today’s featured activity is a passing and overlap exercise.

Start with 4 players in a square approximately 20 x 20. One player starts with the ball.

The player in the opposite corner checks to and the pass is made to that player.

The passer follows his pass and overlaps the receiver while one of the other players positions himself to receive a short drop

The player who receives the short drop pass plays the ball through to the overlapping runner

The players reset to the nearest corner and the ball gets played to the 4th player who starts the rotation back up

Done in groups of 4’s this activity has a lot of movement, a lot of passing, a good deal of communication and requires some thought to make sure everyone does their roles.

Have a great day!
