Warm-Up (10 mins)

Organization: Entire group. Players form a clock shape approx. 30 yards in diameter. GK in middle.

Instructions: Objective is one or two touch accurate shooting at the GK. If GK saves the ball they must throw out firmly to a player on the outside, who has to set it to a supporting player for a shot. If shot misses GK, players on opposite side of clock must be ready to field the ball and set for a team mate for a shot.

Coaching Points:

Clear communication

Players not shooting, alert and on their toes ready to field the shot and keep the drill “live”

Players both sides of the player receiving the ball to support in a position to receive a lay off and shoot

Look up prior to the shot and “picture” the shot

Accuracy over power, try and make the GK save the shot

Progressions:

P1: Encourage inventive, such as play 1 – 2’s then a shot.

P2: Player who sets the ball, follows up for rebounds.
