Soccer Passing Drills and Skills

Soccer passing drills are another vital piece to the game of soccer. Passing helps quickly advance the ball in an attempt to off-balance the defense. Since the speed of the ball is much quicker than a dribble, passing becomes a critical piece of soccer as the kids advance in age and skill level. There are many different types of passes, such as the push pass, chip pass, outside of the foot pass, and instep pass.
