Shooting Unopposed Game

20y by 20y area, 3 players are shooters that can dribble their soccer ball in the area before shooting the ball at a blue player. The blue players are looking to move around and not get hit by a soccer ball.

If a blue player gets hit with a soccer ball they put a pinnie on and get a soccer ball from the pile and become a shooter. The last person left at the end is the winner. The last three players left at the end become shooters for the next round.

Rules:

1) The ball cannot go above the knee

2) Shooters have to kick the ball using their laces

Coaching Points:

- Chest and knee should be over the ball when shooting to prevent it from going in the air

- Players should approach the ball at an angle to generate power

- Players strike the ball at the middle like they would a pass

- Players use their laces to shoot the ball

Opposed Shooting

Set up like above, 3 tall cones . 5 red, 5 blue. Red players have a soccer ball and are the attackers - stand behind the red disc, blue players do not have a soccer ball and are defenders - stand behind the tall cone.

The shooters have a 2 yard advantage over the defenders, they also start the practice (the defenders cannot defend until the attackers moves forward with the ball). The attackers are looking to use their advantage and take a quick shot at the tall cones and knock them down. The defender is looking to react quickly to make it harder for the attacker. Once the attacker has a shot players switch lines - the defender becomes the attacker and the attacker becomes the defenders.

Coaching Points:

1) Look to shoot early

2) Look where the defender is, are they close to you

3) Remember the correct shooting technique (no toes!!!!)

4) Keep the ball on your safe side away from the defender

5) Keep the ball close

Progressions:

- Make the distance of the defenders closer/further away

- Make goals and use a gk

- Bring in more cones/take cones away

- Attackers can only use their weaker foot

Play for 15 Minutes
