Skill Introduction (20 mins)

7 Yellow players are positioned approximately 5m outside of the centre circle

with a ball each and act as 'goalkeepers'

7 Blue players are inside without a ball, in a smaller (7m-8m diameter) circle

They receive a rolled ball off a 'goalkeeper' and with a controlled instep drive,

shoot it back into the goalkeeper's hands

After going back around the next cone they receive a ball from the next

'goalkeeper'

Change roles and direction every 2 minutes

One way using right foot, other direction using left

Coaching moments

It’s about accuracy, not power

Focus on getting the ball back to the keepers

Quick turn away back

Technical points on the run:

Perception (Seeing/Hearing):

Call GK's name to receive the ball

Decision (Recognition/Anticipation/Options/Choices):

Are you aware of the player ahead of you? Try time your run

Execution (Timing/Speed/Quality/Clarity):

Exceute the pass/shot backt to GK with quality and accuracy

Step up 1

"Now goalkeepers: throw the ball and players: volley it back in the goalkeeper’s

hands before it hits the ground"

Coaching moments

Watch the ball on to your foot

Point to which foot you want to receive the ball

Step up 2

Now can we half-volley the ball back to the goal keeper

Step up 3

Receive the ball on the chest and volley back to keeper

Concluding Competition Game:

Coach acts as defender to encourage PDE

One point for every successful completed shot into keepers hands.

Add all the points up for each time

Change the players and see how the second team does.

Skill Training (30 mins)

Organisation

One group focuses on right foot shooting, the other on left foot. Change groups

regularly.

#2 runs around the nearest cone.

As soon as they turn the first cone #1 passes into #2's running path and #1 runs to apply pressure only;

#2 moves the ball away from the defender with the first touch to prepare for a shot from the edge of the penalty area.

#1 then joins the shooting line;

#2 fetches the ball and joins the serving line.

The same pattern takes place in the left foot group.

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 1

Defender can win the ball

Step up 2

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)

Coaching Moments and Player Tasks/Actions:

Striker

Make sure you get the ball, across your body away from the defenders tackle.

Use your arms to block defender getting across you to tackle

Quick glance where the keeper is.

Visualise the ball going in the net

Stay composed

Standing foot points in direction of the shot

Head and Knee over the ball to keep the ball down.

First off use the side of the foot to get direction. Instep for Power

Follow along (through) after the shot in the direction you want to shoot.

GoalKeeper

Rush out to close down the angle and pressure the striker

Cues (To assist Perception, Decision, Execution):

Can you get the ball away from defender

Can you shoot early so the GK is not ready
