Week Three: Passing Introduction

Use the drills and skills in this week to remind your players of the proper technique for making and receiving passes. Our focus will be on teaching players how to direct their passes to teammates and how to control the timing and speed of their passes. Be sure that players understand the right footwork and body positioning for passing before moving onto more advanced passing skills in the next section. Keep in mind that teaching players how to correctly strike the ball when passing will help prepare them to develop good shooting mechanics in future weeks.
