Practice a Key Component to the Fast Break!

By dustin.moscoso - Last updated: Tuesday, December 9, 2014

Marc Van Arsdale was part of Dominic Starsia’s coaching staff for the 2011 NCAA Championship at the University of Virginia, and here Coach Van Arsdale provides you with a passing and catching drill that works on catching the ball over the shoulder. This is an excellent way to work on midfielders breaking out for a pass over their shoulder.

Inside Cuts – Catching the Ball Over the Shoulder

Drill Summary: All the players begin in a line. The first player in line runs out to make a cut and the second player in line throws a pass to the space over the shoulder of the first player. The first player makes the catch on the run and immediately turns up field and passes to a coach or another player that is another 10-15 yards up the field. That coach will then throw it back to the first player who, after passing the ball, has turned around and begins running back to where he began. He finishes by passing back to the spot of the next passer.

This drill mimics a key component of executing the fast break. Players should work on using both hands for this drill and use their teammates names as a way to strengthen team communication and to ensure that they pass to the correct player.
