Passing Weight/Direction - Timing of Movement - Support Play - Rotation
 

Touchtight Coaching Tips:

Try to allow free play and recognise opportunities for possession team to combine quickly with forward passes. If opposition start to protect target players, may need to enforce passing conditions (e.g. 10 passes a goal) to force pressure. Be creative and think about other progressions that could be implemented using STEP model, or ask players to create their own.
