Soccer Training - Improve Long Range Passing
As players evolve and develop physically, they will play on bigger pitches, with more space and the requirements to be able to make long accurate passes will increase. Coaches will need to be able to plan and coach soccer training sessions that help players in developing their ability to make long, accurate passes, using a range of relevant techniques.
Soccer training sessions that enable the players to have lots of realistic, game like opportunities to practice these long range passing techniques and skills need to be incorporated into a coach’s soccer training programme. These soccer training sessions should also incorporate situations that make the passer get their head up before passing, this will dictate the best long passing technique the player will use and decisions that the players make on whether to hit targets - players or space with the pass.
In a game like situation, if a long pass is made, then supporting players will quickly need to move from one area of the pitch, to another area. Soccer training sessions and drills will also need to incorporate not only the different techniques needed, the decisions on the best techniques to use and where to hit the pass, but also support from players, both to be targets to hit with the pass, but also support players off the ball to support the pass
