Killer Ball

This Drill works on players ability to pick out a killer pass with a nicely weighted pass to an on running player.

Set up the drill as in the animation with 2 players inside receiving a pass from the 2 players at the 45.

The players who made the pass should continue their run down the “blind side”, before receiving a killer pass from the player in possession.

Encourage players to get their head up early to notice the run of the player.

The player should then play a weighted pass so the running player does not have to check their run

The drill should finish with a score before the players switch positions.

N>B> In a game situation, your inside forwards should be aware to make a run towards the player in possession, over exaggerating their call for a pass,  to leave space for the player to run into on the blind side
