Quick Passing Combinations to Shoot

By Lawrence Fine, Author of the FineSoccer Coaching Bible.

Welcome to the FineSoccer Drills Newsletter. Today’s featured activity works on quick passing combinations and shooting.

Start with three players in a triangle just outside the 18. The first player has a ball. There is a line of players outside the triangle with balls waiting to take the first player's spot. There is also a keeper in goal.


The first player passes to the second player and starts to follow his pass.


The second player 1 touches to the third player follows his pass.


The third player 1 touches to the first player who has made a run, the third player then sprints to the back of the line.


The first player takes a 1 touch shot and then takes the role of the second player.


After the shot, the first player should be where the second player started. The second player should be where the third player started. The third player is at the end of the line and the fourth player is where the first player started.

While it might seem like there would be a lot of standing around in line, done properly this is an extremely fast moving activity. Players sprint after each pass and shot, and as soon as they get somewhere they should be preparing for the next pass.

You can move this triangle to different areas around the 18 to change the angles and distance of the shots.

Have a great day!
