Association for Soccer Education and Training (ASET)

The Association for Soccer Education and Training (ASET) and the Missouri State High School Soccer Coaches Association are excited to announce a partnership to provide all Missouri high school coaches consistent and modern coaching education. Each month coaches will receive a training activity geared toward the U8-U12 age group and a training activity geared toward the U13 and above age groups. The training activity will provide an explanation of how to run the activity and coaching points that can be brought out to players during the activity.

Another benefit to Missouri high school coaches will be the opportunity to send an email to ASET staff regarding tactical, technical, or psychological situations occurring during a practice or a game. ASET staff will respond to the email offering our thoughts and advice to the questions asked. All emails should be sent to

ASET looks forward to working alongside all Missouri high school soccer coaches to help develop all players. The first activity is a sequential passing activity that also introduces wall passes. The second passing activity was performed by Rayo Vallacano of the Spanish second division. The coaching points of each activity are provided.

B5 makes the first pass to B4 – B4 passes to B3 – B3 passes to B1 – B1 passes to B7
for the sequence to continue as shown above
Rotation of players – players always follow their pass:
B5 to B4
B4 to B3
B3 to B1
B1 to B7
Coaching Points:
Receive the ball across your body
Ball should be passed with pace and should be passed on the ground
Players staying mentally engaged to remember which position they
should move after making their pass
With the same numbered sequence players perform wall passes. #1 will play a
wall pass with #2 then return the ball to #2 so they can perform a wall pass with
#3. The ball is then returned to #3 so they can perform a wall pass with #4, and
the sequence continues.
Coaching Points:
Player in possession must dribble at a player (defender) in order to make
them commit
The pass should be made with the outside of the foot as this is a more
natural motion rather than passing the ball with the inside of the foot
Player acting as the wall should position himself just off the shoulder of
the defender
Player who acts as the wall should allow the ball to come across their
body and play the wall pass with the inside of the further away foot
Wall passes are performed over short distances, not much larger than four
to five yards
