Place the material as shown in the figure. The cones for the slalom are placed 1 1/2 meters spaced; the small hurdles are placed 50 cm spaced; the equilateral triangle from which players A, B and C start is made with 2 markers and one cone, with a 2 meters side. The goal is made with 2 markers outside the line of cones and it is about 2 meters wide. The marker from which player E starts is placed perpendicularly to the starting point of D, on the same horizontal line compared to the cone from where C starts. Give a ball to all players in the line that are ready to face the cone course in slalom, give a ball also to A and B, they will play with their hands.


On coach signal:

  1.  C sprints towards A, who throws him the ball in a way that A can give it back with the inside part of the right foot, then C can touch the cone and does the same going to B to whom gives the ball back with the inside part of the left foot. D starts dribbling and goes in slalom through the cones with the inside of the foot
  2. C moves to C1 and performs a high knee run between the small hurdles, while D completes the cone slalom and gets to D1 then passes the ball to E moveing in order to control the ball
  3. E passes the ball through the goal to C who performs a diagonal cutting movement on C2
  4. C shoots at goal
  • At the end of the action players swap positions.
  • Start the exercise from the opposite side


Coaching Points
  • The player during the pass, must close the skill after hitting the ball by accompanying the trajectory with the movement of the leg
  • Players must work on finishing on first intention, paying attention to the distance between the leg and the ball
  • Each player can focus on each action working on the inserting times
  • At the end of the action swap positions quickly
