This pass and score game is really adaptable as it allows your players to practice their handling skills whilst being challenged under preassure. It also makes them play with their heads up and react to situations that are ever evolving.
If you are practicing handling around the body and round legs to test grip etc I suspect most will have done it with the players in lines racing each other to a cone and back practicing the skill. It works but isn’t very game related.
Set your area up as per the pictures below using cones making each base up of individual colours with about 20 feet between the middle goals and around 35 feet between the 2 end ones.
