Technical Warm Up Y is the 25th installment in our series on technical warm ups. It involves passing and checking. Four players are placed on four cones that form a 20 X 15 yd. grid. Two have balls at their feet. Two additional players are placed inside the grid and towards the sideline (20 yd. line). In the first part of the exercise, the players with the ball play a short pass to the middle players. The middle players quickly lay it back and replace the player they passed it to. The ball is passed diagonally and the passing player checks straight towards the opposite player (they do not follow the ball). The receiving player repeats the combination with a short pass that is returned and then a diagonal pass. In the second pattern, the movement is similar. the difference is that the ball is played straight and the players check diagonal. See video for futher understanding.
