A great fun practice using five players. One player works with the the other four players trying to catch him out using speed of pass rather than just throwing the ball at him. Very good for hand / eye co ordination
A simple passing game that is fun and competitive. You can add more players in and vary the distance to make this harder or easier. Different balls could be used as well. Dad's can do this at home as a fun game
Four lifting pods must hold their jumpers aloft long enough for them to pass a ball through the hands twice.

A basic handling drill for groups of young players with a mixture of talent. Emphasise technique, passing backwards, and running straight. As players become better they can try wider passes and add more pace. Encourage players to swap position.
Counting the number of completed passes in a row challenges the players to never drop the ball.
