How to Execute a Three-person Passing Combination Drill
An internist practicing in Sequim, Washington, George Mathew, MD, sees patients at Pacific Family & Internal Medicine. In his spare time, George Mathew, MD, enjoys playing soccer in a local recreational league.
Soccer requires consistent practice, and drills are a good way to hone skills in dribbling, shooting, and passing. In the case of passing, utilizing a three-person passing combination drill allows players to sharpen passing accuracy. This exercise focuses on developing a player’s concentration, communication, and pacing skills.
To execute the drill, three players line up on a 10- by 20-yard grid. One player stands in the center of the grid while the other two stand in opposite corners, creating a diagonal line of play. The first player, who is standing in one of the corners, begins by passing the ball to the centered player. This player then moves up the field to the open corner, where he or she receives the ball back.
The centered player now moves to the original position of the first player, as the first player passes the ball to the third player and travels to the center position. The third player passes the ball back to the new central player and moves down the field, where he or she receives the ball back. The central player, formerly player one, now progresses to the original spot of player three as the third player passes the ball to the starting point of the drill and moves to the central position. Thereafter, the pattern is repeated.
