I spent tonight's practice working some more advanced passing drills. We put together a lot of good combinations and developed some playmaking skills but it appears I have stumbled upon one roadblock I assumed my team would be over by now...
They can't pass.. I'm not talking any sort of sophisticated pinball type passing where you string together 18 consecutive passes in beautiful fluid motion.. I'm talking about single passes from one person to another.
A pass will often miss the mark, and then even if it doesn't miss the mark it will be fumbled upon reception.
Any soccer players out there come across effective ways to develop passing skills? The only thing I can honestly think of is to drill them for extended periods of time on those basic skills until they have them down. As for what drills to pick.. I'm not quite sure yet. It may be time to revisit the Coerver method.
