Crossover passing is a simple handling drill that allows the players to practice passing and catching the ball at pace and also re-adjusting their run so that they can react again in support.
As per the following video start with 2 lines of players behind cones about 10 meters apart [private]with a man opposite about 10 meters away. Mark out a channel at the same width the players are stood and behind the man 10 meters away from the 2 lines. The first player in line 1 is going to pass to the man in the middle and run across him into the channel whilst the man from line 2 is going the opposite way into the channel, the players are then challenged to pass twice within the channel.
