Unopposed Passing & Shooting

Passing & Shooting 10/15 mins

Split players into two - passers/ shooters. Passers start by side of goal with soccer balls. They pass towards penalty spot for shooter to run on to and shoot first time. Passer joins back of the shooter line and the shooter joins the back of the passers line

This should be a fast paced practice with plenty of rotations. Ensure shooters are collecting ball after shot before joining passers line. GK to role ball quickly out to passers side if saved, leave ball if goal is scored so practice doesn't slow down.

Progression:

- Player who passes ball then steps in to become defender and add pressure to shooter.

Key Coaching Points -

- Angle of approach, hip rotating through ball

- Aiming for corners

- Striking middle of ball with instep/ laces/ inside NOT TOES

- Quality/ weight of pass from passer

- Attentiveness of players, are they ready for the ball?

- Follow up shot in case of rebound.

- Are players making right decision - when to shoot/ when to pass?
