Warm-Up: Shooting through Gates (5 mins)

Description

Pair up players. Set up 5 cones in a line, 5 yards apart. Players stand facing their partners between the 'gates' that are created between the cones. 1 ball for each pair, the aim is to shoot the ball with the lace / instep along the ground to their partner.

Coaching Points

Look at the ball, where are you contacting?

Look at your target, body is facing your partner

Approach ball on an angle, clean strike and follow through

Knee bent, hip rotates

Easier if ball is out in front of you - take a touch out of your feet

Activity 1: Left or Right? (10 mins)

Description

Make 2 teams of 4 and split them into pairs also. Each group is stood 10 yards from either the left or right hand side of a goal. The goal can be split in half with a cone or flag. Each pair has to take a turn to take a touch out of their feet and shoot at the side of the goal they are facing.

You can have them shoot for the far post once they are comfortable. Make it a competition, most goals in 2 minutes etc

Make sure the players wait for the player in front to retrieve their ball and get out of the goal before shooting.
