Session Plan – Passing to create an advantage

Last week, one of La Liga's top sides - Valencia C.F. - held a football camp for kids aged 5-18 years old in Albania. Head of Coaching Content Xhulio Zeneli had the opportunity to be one of the coaches of this camp, working with the youngest age group - 5-9. The camp lasted four days, with kids from different cities and countries taking part. One of the training days was focused entirely around passing, which Xhulio believes is the most important aspect of the game that a young player should learn. Passing may seem like a simple concept, but the art of passing extends to so much more beyond just technique. It extends to scanning of the field, receiving, moving into open space and recognizing how to take advantage of the opposition. So with that, here is a session plan all about how to pass to create an advantage.
