Skill Introduction (15 mins)

* 6 BLUE PLAYERS ARE POSITIONED APPROX. 5 M OUTSIDE THE CENTRE CIRCLE WITH A BALL EACH AND ACT AS 'GOALKEEPERS'.

* 6 RED PLAYERS ARE INSIDE WITHOUT A BALL, INSIDE A SMALLER (7M-8M DIAMETER) CIRCLE SHAPED BY 6 CONES.

* THEY RECEIVE A ROLLED BALL OFF A 'GOALKEEPER' AND WITH A CONTROLLED INSTEP DRIVE, SHOOT IT BACK INTO THE GOALKEEPERS HANDS.

* AFTER GOING BACK AROUND THE NEXT CONE THEY RECEIVE A BALL FROM THE NEXT 'GOALKEEPER'.

* CHANGE ROLES AND DIRECTION EVERY 2 MINUTES.

* WHEN WE MOVE CLOCKWISE, ONLY USE YOUR RIGHT FOOT.

* WHEN WE MOVE ANTI-CLOCKWISE, ONLY USE YOUR LEFT FOOT.

* NOW GOALKEEPERS THROW THE BALL AND PLAYERS VOLLEY IT BACK IN THE GAOLKEPPERS'S HANDS BEFORE IT HITS THE GROUND.

* ITS ABOUT ACCURACY, NOT POWER.

* NOW A HALF VOLLEY.

* FOR EVERY PROPER SHOT WHICH THE GOALKEEPER CATCHES DURING ONE FULL ROUND YOU EARN A POINT.

* NOW CHANGE ROLES.

* COUNT YOUR POINTS, WHO WINS INDIVIDUALLY?

* WHICH GROUP WINS WHEN YOU ADD UP ALL INDIVIDUAL POINTS.

* NOW WE DO IT AGAIN BUT IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION WITH OUR OTHER FOOT.

* NOW ONLY PROPER VOLLEYS COUNT ETC.

ORGANISATION

* ONE GROUP FOCUSES ON RIGHT FOOT SHOOTING, THE OTHER ON LEFT FOOT. CHANGE GROUPS REGULARLY.

* #1 PASSES TO #2 AND RUNS TO APPLY PRESSURE. #2 MOVES THE BALL WITH THE FIRST TOUCH TO PREPARE FOR A SHOT FROM THE EDGE OF THE PENALTY AREA.

* #1 THEN JOINS THE SHOOTING LINE (BEHIND #6). #2 FETCHES THE BALL AND JOINS THE FEEDING LINE (BEHIND #5). THE SAME PATTERN TAKES PLACE IN THE LEFT FOOT GROUP SIMULTANEOUSLY.

* THE ANGLE/DISTANCE FROM #1 TO #2 IS MANIPULATED BY THE COACH TO ENSURE #2 CAN SHOOT WITH THE SECOND TOUCH WITHOUT BEING TACKLED AND WITHOUT HAVING TO BEAT #1.

STEP UP/STEP DOWN

* INCREASE THE ANGLE AND/OR DISTANCE FROM #1 TO #2 TO GIVE #2 MORE OR LESS TIME (LESS OR MORE CHANCE OF #1 APPLYING REAL PRESSURE).

* WITH YOUNGER PLAYERS, THE COACH MAY MOVE THE CONES CLOSER TOWARDS THE GOALS SO THE SHOTS ARE FROM SHORTER DISTANCE (ENSURE SAFETY OF PLAYERS BY NOT MOVING TOO CLOSE TO THE GOALKEEPER).

VARIATIONS

* #1 PASSES THE BALL SQUARE (ALONG THE EDGE OF THE PENALTY AREA) SO #2 CAN RUN AND SHOOT WITH THE FIRST TOUCH.

* #1 STARTS ON A CONE TO THE SIDE OF #2 AND PLAYS THE BALL IN FRONT OF HIM. THE COACH SELECTS THE DISTANCES TO ENCOURAGE FIRST TIME SHOOTING UNDER PRESSURE FROM A CHASING DEFENDER.
