Field size: 30 yards by 20 yards
Number of players: full team with players working in pairs
Age range: 8-10
Description: Setup two cones about four yards apart for beginners to pass the ball through – back and forth. Two players stand about ten yards away from the cones and pass the ball through the cones.
Change the distance from ten yards to twenty to thirty after the players get comfortable with the shorter distance. And either make the goal they are shooting through a little larger or smaller as the game moves on, as they get better or worse at the drill. This depends upon the skill level of the players, of course.
Adjust the angle of the cones too, so players have to use different parts of their feet to pass the ball through the cones. For example, practice trying to bend the ball through the set of cones to the other player.
Setup the drill on a flat service, so the ball doesn’t bounce. There’s nothing wrong with doing some of these drills indoors, at an indoor soccer facility or even in a gym, especially over the winter if you live in an area that gets pretty cold, rainy or snowy.
Equipment needed: Cones and practice vests.
Another great soccer passing drill: Passing Triangle with central passer.
