Drill Instructions:

  1. Each team positions itself in a square formation around opposite corners of the playing area.
  2. One player from each team starts with a ball at their feet.
  3. Begin with a diagonal pass from one team to the opposite corner.
  4. The receiving player controls the ball with one touch and passes diagonally to their teammate in the center of the square.
  5. The central player lays the ball off with one touch to the teammate making a run towards the opposite corner.
  6. This player receives and plays a one-touch pass back to the original starting position, restarting the combination.
  7. Teams alternate initiating the drill, keeping the tempo high.
  8. After a set time (e.g., 2 minutes), switch the directions of play (diagonally opposite corners).

Pro Tip:

  • Encourage clear communication between players to anticipate passes and maintain a smooth flow.
  • Introduce variations by calling for different passing techniques (ground pass, lofted pass).
  • Increase difficulty by adding a neutral defender in the center who tries to disrupt the passing sequence (optional).

Benefits of this Pro Passing Drill:

  • Develops seamless passing combinations.
  • Improves one-touch passing accuracy and speed.
  • Enhances communication and movement off the ball.
  • Increases decision-making speed in fast-paced situations.
