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
Test the middle player with a circle of players who feed two balls in. The passing players MUST call the middle persons name and give a good pass otherwise this exercise will fail. This is great fun if managed properly and excellent for hand / eye
Four lifting pods must hold their jumpers aloft long enough for them to pass a ball through the hands twice.
Lifters should stand close together and try to lock-out their arms.
Jumpers should maintain a strong core and keep their legs straight to make life easier for the lifters.
Coaching players to pass with variety and accuracy is one of the most important challenges a coach faces. The Harlequins academy players are presented with some very challenging exercises to help this process
