Dribbling and passing to stimulate the peripheral vision

 
Goal
Equipment
  • 2 poles
  • 2 markers
  • 2 balls
Preparation
  • Playing area: 15x15 meters
  • Players: 3
  • Duration: 10 minutes
  • Series: 2 series of 5 minutes
Summary Secondary Objectives
Technical exercise proposed to improve the reaction timings and peripheral vision
Space-time differentiation, Peripheral vision, Straight line dribbling, Short pass
Organization

Inside the fixed area place two markers 10 meters apart. In front of the line formed by the two markers, place a pole 5 meters away from the line, and another pole 5 meters from the first pole. Players A (with the ball) and B stay near the corresponding markers. Player C, with another ball stays near the pole.

Description
  • Players A e B pass the ball to each other, while player C carries the ball dribbling around the far pole
  • When player C comes back to the starting pole they pass the ball to one of the other players, choosing between A and B the one without the ball (figure A)
  • Player A receives the ball and continues the passing sequence with the teammate C who replaced the teammate B. Player B carries the ball dribbling around the pole
  • The exercise continues this way, with players rotating their positions for the whole series. 

 

Variations
  1. Pass first touch all the time when passing
  2. Obligatory 2 touch when passing
  3. Dribble using just a specific part of the foot, or the left one rather than the right one etc.
Coaching Points
  • Verify the intensity during the passing sequence
  • Verify the synchronicity of players when rotating
  • Encourage the players to keep an eye on both of the balls stimulating the peripheral vision
