The following soccer passing drill is challenging for your players. Demanded is a passing and running speed as fast as possible. In case of a 2-touch play, the ball-away foot receives the ball and the other one passes the ball. In case of a demanded one-touch play, always pass the ball to the dummy-away (thus, opponent-away) foot.

Procedure:
A starts with an initial dribbling and passes the ball into the path of B. A starts a run to the front dummy, receives the ball in a closed position and passes the ball within 2 touches to C at the starting point. C passes the ball using one-touch to B, who opens behind the left dummy. He forwards the ball directly to A, who is situated at the right dummy. A delays and passes within the second touch to B at the back dummy, who plays off the dummy with a give-and-go combination with A. The ball is played to D and the com-bination starts from the other side. A and B get behind D and E. C returns to his starting position.
