Players practice coming under control and then taking a shot to beat a goaltender.
- Create a grid that is 30 yards long by 20 yards wide and put a goal in the center.
- Also put a cone about 7-10 yards from each endline.
How it Works
- Divide players into two teams. Have each team line up at an opposite endline.
- First player from line two runs out to goal and becomes goaltender.
- First player from line one then dribbles hard to the cone, stops, then takes one step and shoots on goal.
- Shooter becomes goaltender and next player from line two dribbles out and shoots.
- A goal counts if only below the height of the keeper and in between the cones.
- Make sure players are not backing up or moving to the side before they shoot. It should just be one step and a shot – no extra steps.
- Also make sure the plant foot is not too far behind the ball, this will send the ball over the keeper’s head.
- Shooter must follow their shot. They need to get to the goal quickly after shooting to protect the goal against the next shooter.
