Soccer Diamond Passing Combination


Setup

  1. Set up 4 cones in the shape of an elongated diamond.
  2. Assign an all-time passer on each of the two cones where the points of the diamond are closest.
  3. Rotate these passers every 3-5 minutes. In our diagram, the passers are in red.

Instructions

  1. Have the first player in line pass to one of the passers and overlap them.
  2. The passer that receives the first pass plays a first time ball into the other passer who then returns the ball to the player overlapping.
  3. The player then plays into the next player in line and the pattern repeats going the other direction.
