Organization
Play three against three with two five-metre goals. Score by rolling the ball into the goal from a maximum of ten metres.
Learning
The players practise creating and making use of 2-1 situations, above all by using the wall pass. The person with the ball can also try the passing move, and his/her team-mate can turn and go him/herself or pass to the third player.
Variations
Occasionally limit the number of touches. Award extra points for goals preceded by a successful wall pass.
Coaching points (here we call them SECRETS):
  • The wall pass is an extremely good alternative when you want to get past an opponent
  • Challenge your opponent and then wall pass to a team-mate who is giving support
  • Your team-mate normally gives support diagonally in front of you and will pass back in the direction of your run
  • An unmarked team-mate can turn in the direction of the pass during a wall pass
  • It is then possible for him or her to pass safely with the back foot, that is the back foot in relation to you
  • A team-mate who is being marked also needs to screen the ball from his/her opponent
  • In this case, it is best to pass with the nearest foot, the foot furthest away from the opponent
  • At the same time, your team-mate will disguise the pass better from his/her opponent
  • You have to wall pass at high speed to succeed
  • The greater your speed from the beginning, the better your chance of getting past the defender
  • For this reason, it is best to be moving at high speed even before you pass the ball
  • If you are moving slowly before you pass, you have to dodge at the same time as passing
  • You then follow up your increase in speed after you have passed the ball as well
  • In order to succeed, it is also important to get close to the defender before you pass
  • However, never so close that you give your opponent too great a chance of reaching the ball and intercepting
  • If you pass with the outside of the foot, you can both move at high speed and get close to the defender
  • In this way, you can also disguise the pass from your opponent for a long time
  • It is occasionally difficult to run away from your opponent immediately after passing
  • In this case, your team-mate can help by delaying the pass back to you
  • Your team-mate can e.g. use two touches instead of one
  • Your team-mate can fool your opponents by occasionally turning with the ball him/herself
  • Wall passes can be performed in various directions, in different positions and at various angles
  • Wall passes can be performed in the air and in small areas inside your opponents' box
  • Learn to recognise how to give support for wall passes and how to perform wall passes
  • A variation of the wall pass is to double pass in various ways
  • Your team-mate then gives support a second time after the wall pass
  • You can then pass back to him or her again immediately after the wall pass
  • It will be like two wall passes or three passes in a row, you can call it a triple pass if you want to
  • The person with the ball can also feint a pass and dribble past the opponent
  • Occasionally, your team-mate can pass to a third player instead of completing the wall pass
