PASSING & RECEIVING OVERVIEW

EASTSIDE FC ONLINE TRAINING 

The wall is your perfect passing partner, who will always give you exactly the same pass it received.  When you get a great pass back from the wall, you are doing it right!

 

Considerations

  • Focused repetition is key to mastery

    • Take breaks, or change exercises if you start to lose concentration

    • Some days may be harder than others, but then you break through with confidence

  • Quality is more important than speed

    • Always try to increase your speed, while maintaining quality

  • Progress to more advanced touches after mastering simpler ones

  • Always practice with your weaker foot

  • Consider the speed of pass, keeping ball flush on the ground, with accuracy

  • 15-30 minutes allows for up to 1000 touches!

 

 

 

Wall Work Out Guidance

  • Pick a distance from the wall that allows you to hit ball hard enough for it to return to you

  • Pay attention to your body shape and balance after striking to ball

  • Your plant foot should be right next to the ball, and pointed straight ahead

    • Many younger players do not get plant foot positioning correct

  • The foot striking the ball should be locked firm to create a solid surface

  • Start with simple 2 touch passing and receiving

    • Master this BEFORE any other wall drills

  • Progress to 1 touch after two touches are mastered

  • Every player should start each workout with the simple touches
