Quick Coach: Two pass race

CORE SKILLS

  • Short passing
  • Catching
  • Timing
  • Speed

THE STORY

“Lines of three players pass the ball quickly to the end player who races to a line in front of them to be the winner of the groups.”

SET UP

Three cones and a ball per group.

HOW TO PLAY

  1. Put a player on each cone, with the ball at the right-hand cone.
  2. When you say go, the players pass the ball to the far player (two passes not one!).

  1. When the far player receives the ball, they sprint to the line in front of them.
  2. The winner is the first player to the line.
  3. Rotate the players and repeat.
  4. Once all the players have had one sprint, start the ball at the other end.

DEVELOPMENTS

  • Have the last receiver start a few metres back so they can run onto the ball. They decide how far back.
  • Have the first receiver also start a few metres back.

NUMBERS

With five, you can act as a feeder for one group. With four, time each attempt of a trio.
