Drill Objective
To help players improve their passing skills by practicing possession, position and penetration.

Drill Set-Up
Set out a 30-x-45-yard area, divided into three equal zones, with a goal at each end zone. Split your players into two teams of five. Goalkeepers are optional. Players are stationed in one of the zones and remain in that zone. For each team, put two players are in the defensive zone, two players in the midfield zone and one player in the attacking zone. A team passes to maintain possession and attempts to work the soccer ball into the next zone with a pass. Once receiving the ball in the attacking zone, the attacker can shoot, dribble or use support to maintain possession. A pass cannot be played over two zones at once.

Drill Progression
Once players get comfortable with the drill, allow players to follow their passes into the next zone and continue playing.
