Follow the Leader:
6 players and 2 footballs.
The blue ball is the ‘leader’ and as that is passed the player in possession of the red ball must pass to keep both balls always opposite each other.
The cones show the opposite place for each pass but this is purely for the purpose of the animation.
This is a slow passes passing warm up to get all players scanning, thinking and communicating. Players can take a couple of touches to make the drill work and when they don’t have a ball at their feet it’s an oppertunity to stretch off and get ready for the session ahead. (This is a pre-training exercsie great for players to do when arriving early)
Possible Progression: 1 touch would raise the tempo of both balls
Advanced Progression: Simply turn it into a rondo with a defender in the middle trying to intercept (no tackling – that can be an even more advanced progression if you wish) the blue ball. Again it’s justa rondo with the blue ball the key ball but the players are also challenged by trying to keep the red ball opposite the blue all the time – to aid succes start with a faily large area for your rondo.
