Dribbling and passing to stimulate the peripheral vision
- 2 poles
- 2 markers
- 2 balls
- Playing area: 15x15 meters
- Players: 3
- Duration: 10 minutes
- Series: 2 series of 5 minutes
Technical exercise proposed to improve the reaction timings and peripheral vision
|Space-time differentiation, Peripheral vision, Straight line dribbling, Short pass|
Inside the fixed area place two markers 10 meters apart. In front of the line formed by the two markers, place a pole 5 meters away from the line, and another pole 5 meters from the first pole. Players A (with the ball) and B stay near the corresponding markers. Player C, with another ball stays near the pole.
- Players A e B pass the ball to each other, while player C carries the ball dribbling around the far pole
- When player C comes back to the starting pole they pass the ball to one of the other players, choosing between A and B the one without the ball (figure A)
- Player A receives the ball and continues the passing sequence with the teammate C who replaced the teammate B. Player B carries the ball dribbling around the pole
- The exercise continues this way, with players rotating their positions for the whole series.
- Pass first touch all the time when passing
- Obligatory 2 touch when passing
- Dribble using just a specific part of the foot, or the left one rather than the right one etc.
- Verify the intensity during the passing sequence
- Verify the synchronicity of players when rotating
- Encourage the players to keep an eye on both of the balls stimulating the peripheral vision
