Passing With Proper Pace

Welcome to the FineSoccer Drills Newsletter.  Today's featured activity works on passing with proper pace.

Start with 6 players on the perimeter of a circle with a diameter of around 20 yards.  They are in groups of 2's and are opposite their partners in the group.  There is one ball per group.


The players start off passing back and forth with their partner.  They play 2 touch and must pass the ball so as it gets to the intended target and doesn't hit another ball.


The players must time when they pass the ball and the weight of the pass to make sure their ball doesn't hit another ball.

Next, the players do the exact same thing but this time, it's one touch passing.  This means, they can't time when they pass but can alter the weight of the pass to make sure it doesn't interfere with the path of any of the balls.

Next, add a third person to each group


The players pass one touch between the group of three and again, must emphasize the pace/weight of the pass to avoid their ball making contact with the other balls.

This is a great activity to to work on one touch passing, vision, weight and communication.

Have a great day!
