Check-in passing drill


Create 3 lines 5 yards apart with the cones lined up between the 3 lines. Divide your team into groups of two with 1 ball per group. Players will start on each of the outside lines, one player is working and one player is playing into the working player.


Both players start on the outside line. The non-working player passes the ball into the working player. The working player checks-in towards the middle cone, receives the ball just outside the middle cone, and plays the ball back into the non-working player. The working player then backpedals to the outside line where they began, and repeats this motion 10 times before switching partners.

Change how the receiving touch is performed:

  1. Have the receiving touch with inside of foot across the body and pass with the inside of the opposite foot
  2. Have the receiving touch with the outside of the foot to the outside of the same foot and return the pass with the inside of the foot.
  3. Play in 1-touch with the inside of the foot alternating right and left foot.
  4. Play in 1-touch with the outside of the foot alternating right and left foot.
