Double Pass Drill

The following passing warm up drill comes from Smedley’s Soccer Site.

The player in the center (A) plays the ball to an outside player (B), and then receives his return pass. After receiving, Player A passes to a different outside player (C) then takes his position on the outside of the field. Player C moves into the center and starts the next combination with a pass to Player D. The pattern continues from there – double pass / pass outside, double pass / pass outside.

Coaching Points:

  1. Make the return pass as short as possible by going to the ball.

  2. Use one touch when you can, two touches when you should.

  3. All outside players have be alert and on their toes in order to play in a one touch rhythm.

Progression: The central player can dribble to the outside and perform a takeover combination.
