Wave for U12:

  • Three teams, 1 ball: pass and cross behind the player.
  • Do this slowly at first, U12 kids find this a difficult exercise. Focus on passing and running. Start together (half field lengthwise) and build up when it goes well.
  • Depending on the size of the group, divide the field.

Variant for when it goes well:

  • Finish with score and play 2x1 (the one who scores will defend),
  • Pay attention to outlet pass (ask for the ball on the sideline).


For U12 first explain well which lines are used.
Standard killer with line touching, executing with ball and different commands.

  • Slowly build up speed as a warming up,
  • Possibly let a player determine what the assignments are.
  • Do take a rest now and then.


  • Left to go, right back
  • Left/right (cross)
  • Backwards (2 times left, 2 times right)
  • Put the ball down (under ball back, pick up ball back and next line)
  • With press-ups (2x on the line), jumping, abs ect.
