Inside Out - Chipping

Objective:

  • To develop chip passing.

  • To develop the receiving of balls in the air.

Target:

  • To learn how to chip balls and develop good controlling skills when receiving aerial balls.

Organization

  • Split group into two (does not matter if numbers are odd).

  • Depending on numbers mark a 25 x 25-yard square.

  • Half of the group in the square; half spread evenly on the outside.

  • All players on the inside have a ball.

  • Inside players must play a chipped (lofted) pass ideally into the hands of an outside player.

  • Must then find another outside player to receive a throw-in pass to be controlled by chest, thigh or foot.

  • After one minute or so outside players change with the inside players.

 

Teaching

  • Encourage players with the ball to look around to see who is available on the outside.

  • Players must play an accurate chip pass by stubbing the foot under the ball.

  • After chipping the ball player turns away to see who on the outside has a ball in the hands and then demands the throw-in ("David! Yes!).

  • Insist on a "correct" throw-in and tell the outside players not to throw the ball in if the inside player comes too close.

  • Perhaps restrict one session to left foot only.
