1.Training technique with random variables

If you find that your team is making a lot of mistakes on short distance ground passess try to improve your players with a small sided game where they focus on this skill.

Insist on the following exercise for quite some time even as an extension of warm-up. Capturing the wrong kinetic patterns of executing this particular skill from the brain at an early age can even be an insurmountable obstacle to correction.

If your players are adults and have already learned to perform this skill, then performing it under the pressure of space and time by randomly displaying the speed and direction variables of the ball, different body postures, etc. can improve them.
