Welcome to the FineSoccer Drills Newsletter. Today’s featured activity works on long passes, receiving long passes, combinations and finishing.
Start with two goals 50 yards apart with a keeper in each goal. There are two players in the middle and a line of players on the right side of each goal with balls.
The first player in one of the lines starts by driving a ball to the far player in the middle.
The player who made the pass then sprints forward while the receiving player lays the ball back to the other player in the middle.
The receiving player then finds the runner for a first time shot.
As soon as the last pass is made the same thing starts up in the other direction.[wpsharely id="1204"][/wpsharely]
In looking at this activity it’s easy to assume there is a lot of standing around waiting but done properly, with a group of 8 field players and 2 keepers, the players keep moving and get a lot of work on long passes, receiving balls, laying balls off, supporting each other and finishing.
Have a great day!
