This drill stresses getting to the ball fast, controlling it and then shooting with good technique.
- Players form two lines one on each side of coach about 20 yards from the goal.
How it Works
- Coach serves a ball toward the goal and the first player from each line races to get it, gain control and shoot.
- Players return to the back of the opposite line.
- Encourage a good first touch and make sure players then use good shooting technique. That means non-kicking foot alongside the ball, head down, eyes on the ball. Player makes contact with middle to top half of the ball and strikes through it.
