Hit it

Start & organisation

  • Divide players into two teams and position as shown, either side of a central cone with a ball on top
  • Players pass to the other side, trying to hit the ball off the central cone
  • Reset the ball if it is hit and continue

Timings: 10-15 minutes
Pitch area: 20m x 15m (small field)
Other rules: N/A


  • Increase or decrease the distance between players and the central cone
  • Make it competitive by getting players to count the number of attempts it takes to hit the central cone

What to look for

  • Are players aiming to hit the central cone?
  • Are players using the inside of their foot to strike the ball?

What the coach can do

  • Positively praise those who are accurate with their passes
  • Cater for individuals by mixing the pairs or varying the distances between them and the central cone
