there are numerous possibilities to find suggestions and ideas if looking for passing-drills. Magazines, books and the internet provide a wide
range of organizations and variations.
However, experienced coaches know: Not the exercises decide about the learning process of a player, but the coaching of the trainer!
In order to present a selection of possible coachings on passing-exercises for coaches, I wrote this eBook. Its purposes is to help identifying the fundamental
principles behind every passing-exercise in order to transfer these to every other organization there is. For this purpose, you find tactical behavior's and matching detail-coachings in the first
part of this eBook. Following this, I want to demonstrate with the use of 23 variations how fast and easy tactical principles can be transferred to a single organization of an exercise. I have
chosen the passing-triangle as a clear and ideal organization to specifically illustrate tactical and technical behavior’s. The variations are arranged according to a different number of players
and the skill level - but they can be randomly combined among each other.

How to coach passing in soccer
Coordinated Releasing of Several Players!
In the passing-triangle, depending on the variation and the level, up to five players are involved in one play. Thereby, further thematic priorities of a
tactical play can be coached and trained - because all players need to release coordinately. Every combination starts with the initial dribbling of the first player and all other players need to
adjust their timing to this action. All players need to release so that they are open for a pass right in the moment their teammate wants to pass. If the player without ball is too early in his
position, he will be covered again (in competition). If he is too late in his position, the ball carrier will quickly be pressured on (in competition). If two players are situated at one dummy,
both shall release coordinately and occupy different paths as well as spaces. For example, one player positions next to the dummy while the other player moves back into the depth.
If Possible, Situate in an Open Position!
If the timing of realizing is right, the question arises how a player positions in relation to the field. In the passing-triangle, it is always possible to position so that a
player is able to see the whole organization and all players at every time - the open position. Even if a player is involved into two successive actions, he is always supposed to position so that
he is able to access good passing quality with both feet.

Drill in the Passing-triangle
Organization & Coaching: Respectively two players position at the left and right dummy (B & C - D & E). A starts an initial dribbling. With the
dribbling, B releases next to the dummy and receives the ball in a half-open position. C releases simultaneously behind the dummy. B back passes one-touch with the right foot. A follows his pass,
situates himself in an open position and passes the ball into the run of C. With this pass, D releases from the back of his dummy, is passed to and directly forwards the ball to C. With this
pass, E releases behind the dummy and sprints into the depth. C plays the ball into the run of E. E dribbles back to the starting point.
Position Change: A takes over the position of B. B remains with the dummy, but occupies the position of C. C runs through to the position of D. D situates at
the position of E and E dribbles to the starting point.
