All right guys, Hi I’m Miss Clark and today we are going to be working on soccer passing. Can anyone tell me something that you know, that you have already worked on that’s important when you’re passing the soccer ball?

(Devon)

Balance!

(To Devon)

Balance, Yup! Mike?

(Mike)

Plant!

(To Mike)

Yup!

(To Whole Class)

Anyone Else?

(Eric)

Follow Through!

(To Eric)

Yup! Good!

(To Whole Class)

All right, So everyone spread out and we are just gonna to practice the motions without the ball. So, This is gonna be, uh, hitting the ball with your right foot. So, I want everyone to plant with your left foot. The ball would usually be right next to your foot and then you want your toe pointing outward. And you want to swing to make contact with the inside of your foot. And then swing through toward your target. And then when you want to do it with your right, left foot sorry, you plant with your right foot. Have your other toe pointing out sideways and then swing make contact with the inside of your foot and follow through. All right, So can you guys form a circle with one person in the middle, please? We are going to get right into a drill. All right, You guys can spread out a little bit more. All right, using the cues that I just talked about I want to see how fast we can get the ball around the whole circle with everyone having a chance to be the center person.

(To Devon)

All right, So, Devon can you demonstrate?

(Devon)

Sure.

(To Whole Class)

So, Using what we just talked about I want you to pass it to Banks then, er, Eric. Then Eric will. And then you’re going to pass it all the way around the circle. And then when it gets back to Eric, Eric is going to come into the middle and switch places. We want to be as efficient and fast as we can do this while using the soccer skills we just talked about. So, Now Eric can be in the middle and Devon comes out. And pass it back around. Lets see how fast we can do this with using good skills. If you have to slow it down so you are more accurate.
