Warm Up (15 mins)

Set up 3-gates (2yds) facing a center cone 10-yds away.

i) Player A passes to Player B

ii) Player B uses the inside of his R-Foot to pass the ball through the L-Side gate to Player C

iii) Player A passes again to Player B

iv) Player B uses the inside of his L-Foot to pass the ball through the R-Side gate to Player D.

v) Players C & D control passes played to them and put the ball near Player A for redistribution

vi) Rotate A & B players every 1-min shooting. After 2-rounds each, rotate A/B with C/D.

Coaching Points

1) Body Preparation: Is Player A on his toes? Hips on a swivel to redirect the ball? Focused on the ball and the strike technique? Stepping onto the ball, not waiting for it to come him?

2) Execution: Accuracy of the passes? Weight of passes? Height of passes? Consistency of passes?

3) Foundation: Does the player look balanced? Is the technique the same on BOTH feet? How does player react to bad technique? Shake it off or self criticize?

Activity One (20 mins)

In a 18yd x 20yd area set 2-age appropriate goals up at either end with 4-lines of players

i) Player A plays an 8-yd pass to Player B.

ii) Player B controls the ball and lays it forward

iii) Player A attacks the lay off and shoots 1st time using the inside foot technique

iv) Player A goes to line B; Player B gets a ball and goes around to join line C.

v) Players C & D repeat the same process simultaneously

Coaching Points

1) Set Up: Are the passes accurate and lay offs in an area for a 1st time strike? Are shooting players attacking the ball at speed?

2) Technique: Since the shot will be from 8-9yds, are players looking for accuracy over power? Are the shots on target? Are the goalkeepers forced to dive? Are players looking for secondary chances?

3) Tendencies: Are you seeing a difference in technique when players pass a ball 8-yds to when they shoot from 8-yds If YES, why?

Activity Two (20 mins)

4-Goal Game; In a 40yd x 30yd area; 4 v 4 + 4

i) NO Restrictions

ii) Players on the outside cannot score

iii) 1st time shots/goals count double

iv) Rotate the floating team every 3-min

v) Progress by turning inside floaters to players. IE 5 v 5 + 2 (floaters on outside only)

Coaching Points

1) Scoring Chances: With 4-Goals, are there a lot of shots? Are they taken early? Are they accurate?

2) Player Awareness: With 4-goals, are players aware of what goal is most open? If play is condensed, are they looking to possess to space and other goal to score?

3) Movement: Are players in the flow of the game or looking to be a goalhanger/cherry picker? Movement is essential to creating/finishing chances.
