The aim is to encourage good passing technique and timing of movement.

Organisation: 8+ players and 2 ball. Players divide up on the corners of a square, use cones to mark this if necessary. 2 players begin with a ball in the middle of the line on 2 sides of the square.

They then pass diagonally to another player driving out from their corner of the square. This process then repeats with the path of the ball forming a diamond shape within the square formation. Aim to work consistently for a set period of time / amount of passesĀ
