Technical - Finishing

Side A:

In shaded area players play simple keep away game. After 4 passes, player with the ball passes out to position 1 and overlaps player 1. Player 1 returns their pass and they cross into the box.

Player 1 makes a near post run, player 3 makes a penalty spot run. Either one can finish.

Player from shaded area becomes player 1. 1 moves to 2 (GK). 2 moves to 3. 3 joins keep away game.

Side B

Players play same keep away game in shaded area. After 4 complete passes the player with the ball plays a simple 1 - 2 with player 1 and tries to finish first time. Shooting player moves to 1, player 1 moves to 2, player 2 moves to keep away.

Progressions:

- Change the side of the overlapping run on side A and player 1 on side B to change the shooting foot.

- Challenge the group to get as many shots on goal as they can in 90 seconds

- Place a tall cone or two in the bottom corner of the goal, goals don't count unless they touch the cone.

Coaching Points

- Open instep to face target, lock ankle, follow through towards target

- Open hips to target, opening the foot will only direct the ball so much, the direction of the hips will keep the path of the ball wide of the GK

- Don't be afraid to miss! Aim for the extremes of the goal rather than just being happy to hit the target.
