Groups of Three Passing & Receiving Movement

​The Set-up: 

1 ball for every 3 players.  Two 3 yard gates should be set-up as pictured.  Players should stand approximately 5 yards away from the gates.

The Exercise: 

Player A dribbles across (as pictured top left) and passes the ball through the gate to player B.  A should now run to take up B’s position.  Player B receives the ball and dribbles across toward the other gate.  Player B now passes the ball through the gate to Player C (pictured bottom right).  The exercise continues.

Note: When teaching a player to receive the ball there are a few important things to observe.

  1.     Does the player get in line of the balls path?
  2.     Is he or she in a good starting position, soft on their feet, no heels on the floor?
  3.     Does the player take their 1st touch in the direction they want to go in?
