What’s going on? Little dap. It’s Jared Montz
former pro and founder of OnlineSoccerAcademy.com. Today we are learning how to do a wall pass.
Soccer training drills. This week’s Online Soccer Academy drills for
youth soccer video is geared towards beginner players and coaches of younger players. In
the video you will learn how to do a wall pass and how to teach it to your players.
If you are an advanced player watching this OSA video you can apply this exercise to a
shooting, crossing or more challenging exercise you create. A wall pass, also know as a 1-2 or give in
go, is a great way to pass around a defender instead of trying to dribble by a defender. This week’s OSA soccer training video is presented
by Senda Athletics! Senda makes high quality fair trade soccer balls. Would you like to

Senda and say you’d like to be entered. Equipment Needed: Soccer Drills
For this exercise you will need 4 cones and each player will need a ball. Soccer drills
for kids. Exercise Player Can Do: How to Coach Soccer
I will show you how the youth soccer drills will look and then we will go over how to
set up soccer drill and the key points soccer skills. My soccer players in the video are
probably going to be much older then your soccer players but it is for example purposes. Stephen says, “Wall Pass”. Alex says, “Wall
Pass”. Now let’s break it down coach soccer for how
you can set this up. All players need a ball and get in a line
behind me. Stephen, you come stand here as the example imaginary defender. Alex, you
stand here and be the soccer coach. Players, now in a game if there is a defender
in front of me should I always try to dribble past them? No What can I do? You can pass
and move around them and this what we call a wall pass, so watch this. Wall pass! Notice soccer coaches I don’t tell the players
what we do when a defender is in front of them, I ask them first. This engages their
mind and gets them thinking before I give them the answer. For example when a player
makes a mistake in a game instead of telling them what they did wrong, ask them what they
did wrong. If they give you the right answer, then you know they are learning and that is
progress. If they give you the wrong answer, then correct them, be positive and move on. Now let’s coach this to our players. Coaching
youth soccer. Key Points: Coaching Soccer
1. Communicate loud and clear by saying wall pass. 2. Sprint around defender, not in front of
them. 3. Teammate passes the ball in the space in
front of you. 4. Stay down at the other cone and once the
whole line has gone, then turn around and go the other way. Let’s do this one more time as an example
players. We will do this 3 times each way and then
move on. For the exercise we will not have a defender, we will use the cone as our imaginary
defender. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: How to Coach
Youth Soccer If the wall pass looks slow it’s because the
teammate passing the ball is passing the ball behind the player making the run, not in front.
Play the ball in front of your teammate making the run. Bonus Tip! Youth Soccer
Keep the lines small! If you have 10 players and two coaches then don’t have one big line
of 10, make two smaller lines of five and use both coaches as passers. Big lines lead
to players getting bored and getting into trouble while waiting for their turn. When first doing these exercises I like to
have the coach be the passer. This way the exercise goes smooth and we limit bad passes
on the wall pass throwing off the learning process. As you do this exercise more and
more and players understand it have a player be the wall passer of the ball. After doing this soccer skill in practice
play a small sided game to goals or a scrimmage and give a bonus point when players make a
wall pass. Hope you enjoyed this Online Soccer Academy

  1. Good luck! For tryout advice, click the "View All OSA Videos" button on your Online Soccer Academy profile (it's free, sign up if you aren't a member) and then search for the video titled "Soccer Tryouts Advice – Soccer Tips". That will help you a lot. Then go out and practice!

  2. This OSA video is sponsored by Senda. It's geared towards beginner players and coaches of younger players.

  3. 1st – Thanks for watching! 2nd – I'm sorry if it annoys you I call it "Soccer" not "Football". I don't mean to annoy you but in America, where I am from and live, we call it "Soccer". If I were to call it "Football" the American viewers would be very confused as to why I am not teaching them "American Football". So please bare with me and chalk it up to cultural differences. I assure you when I am in Europe I will call it "Football" not "Soccer". Thanks again for watching!

  4. That is not nice. The Senda balls are very nice and quite a few OSA players have already bought a few of them. Senda is a great company, producing high quality soccer balls and it is really cool of them to sponsor the Online Soccer Academy. Sponsors like them help us keep the OSA free for everyone so please support them instead of being rude. I'm not mad and you have a right to your opinion but I'm just saying. Thanks for watching!

  5. If you run in front of the defender it gives them a chance to block you and it also closes down the space you need for the wall pass.

  6. The wall pass person in this video is the coach. If you have it be a player I suggest you have them do it with their dominant foot. Reason being you are focusing on doing a wall pass in this exercise, not working on your weak foot. If you encourage the wall pass person to use their weak foot and they keep messing up the exercise with a bad pass that will not be successful for the main purpose, which is the wall pass. Hope that makes sense.

  7. Can you make a video yhat helps slow players or a video that help people who didn't play soccer for a while?

  8. Would you recommend me getting the Senda balls? I saw their movie and I'm really thankful that they're doing this 🙂 What do you think of the balls?

  9. Yep, got tons of those. Go to OnlineSoccerAcademy(dot)com and click "Videos" and their are 200+ videos there to help you and players of all levels.

  10. I like Senda's soccer balls. If I didn't like them I assure you I wouldn't allow them to be a sponsor and I wouldn't endorse them. I only endorse products that I believe in and I've turned down lots of companies from sponsoring the OSA because I didn't think their products were good for you. So yes, go buy a Senda ball if you can! They are great!

  11. They could stop it if needed but usually you do a wall pass with one touch, but you could take two touches.

  15. Yes, I still do OSA Soccer Camps! Go to the "Camps" page of OnlineSoccerAcademy(dot)com and you can see our locations. I don't have any in Houston.

  34. Maybe one day. That would be a long video! The great players know when to use skill and when to keep it simple.

  35. good vid Jared, what age would you start adding a bit of movement into the player 2 playing the 1/2? e.g. player 1 plays to player 2 before he receives the ball he goes long to come short to create the space shouts for the pass then plays the 1/2 with the passing player.

  36. You could add that in around age 10 but I'd do it as a progression of this exercise. Example being you have done this wall pass exercise 3-4 times at different training sessions. Then on the 5th time you do it at a training session you add the creating space shouts.

  37. Thanks. We are going to try to do more OSA videos geared for coaches in the future. Have a great weekend!

  38. Sounds great, at the moment I am trying to take my futsal playing experience and use that in my coaching. Look forward to seeing more videos like this. Have a good weekend to.

  39. You are welcome! Cheers! We release a new Online Soccer Academy video every Monday and we have 200+ videos for you at OnlineSoccerAcademy(dot)com. Enjoy!

  40. why not do an overlap? many professional defenders are good at reading passes such as the wall pass. an overlap gives 2 options for the defender to make him think that he should takle the ball or follow the other player

  41. Hey! There's this defender, and he constantly fouls everyone. How would I deal with this very aggressive player?

  42. So when you try to pass to a player openly rather then directly should you say wall pass or is there another word for it? I tried to pass to a player on my team once and he decided not to run for it so i should probably warn them when I'm passing openly to them what words should i use?.

  43. Thank you for your videos. My daughter is 11 and plays on the Special Olympic Soccer team lowest level. This is her first year. She is having a problem passing to other players. I want her to learn how to do this the right way. Have you ever thought of making special videos for Special Olympics?

  44. Thanks for the vid. I am a new coach to an u12 team and was looking for drills/exercises to use (as the curriculum is made by the coaches to a degree). I will need to watch your other videos.
