FOOTBALL TRAINING – TRIANGLE SET FOR ANGLED PASS

FOOTBALL TRAINING – TRIANGLE SET FOR ANGLED PASS

 

ORGANISATION

 

Lay out a triangle of cones or discs, with 10 – 12 yards between them. The distance can be adjusted to suit the age and ability of the players. Place two players, with a ball on the first cone and a player on the other two cones. This practice is adaptable and by setting out other triangles, it can accommodate more players.

To start the practice, the player with the ball passes to player on the cone to their left. The pass should be along the floor, accurate and well weighted. It should be to the outside of the cone. The player receiving the ball should check away from the ball, then check back to receive the pass. The receiving player should set the ball back inside the triangle for the first player, who has made a supporting run. The supporting player then passes diagonally across the triangle to next player. After setting the ball, the player makes a timed run, round the cone to support the pass. After passing, the passing player moves to the next disc. The practice is repeated around the triangle.
