Training Awareness and Vision

This week’s Animated Drill Video describes a great environment that you can use with your players to train them to get their heads up and look around before receiving the ball. The more information they’re able to collect before the ball arrives the quicker they’ll be able to evaluate their choices and select the right one before they disappear.

Six Cone Passing

Barca Passing Pattern

This is a passing exercise that has an almost endless number of possible progressions and variations. I also like it because the movements of one play rely on what their teammate does. This kind of awareness is so important to the game but is missing from many exercises.

Fitness Training Indoors

The indoor season provides a change of pace and focus that I think is good for player development but you don’t want to completely lose the base of fitness that was built during the outdoor season. The challenge is that you have a limited amount of space to work with when you’re training indoor. We use a school gym, and a small one at that.
