Circle Passing – 3rd Man Running / Center Player

The same as  the previous  exercise,  except  this  time after  player  B  has  made  the return pass  to  player  A,  he moves  into  the center  to  receive  the pass  from  player  C.    Player A moves  into  the  spot  vacated by  player  B. 

Coaching  Points 

  • Timing  is  vital  –  don’t  make  your  runs  too early 
  • The ball  must  keep  moving 
  • The third  player  must  be aware  of  where he  will  receive the pass 

Center  Player 

Start  with  a  player  who  stays  permanently  in  the center  of  the circle.    Player  A  starts by passing  to  the  center  player,  D.    Player  D  plays  a give-and-go  with player  A  who  then passes across the  circle  to  player  B.    Player  B  continues  the drill  by  passing  to  player  D. 

Coaching  Point 

  • The player  in  the center  ‘runs’  the drill,  communication,  speed,  etc. 
  • Must be moving  and  showing 

Progression 

  • Add a  second player  in  the  center.
