This session should be a treat for your players as we allow them to take aim and fire in this shooting session - focussing on accuracy, speed and ability to shoot (on target) under pressure!
Players are always dying to have a few shots on goal, as you've probably noticed at the start and finish of every training session, but as much as this might be fun for your players it's not always beneficial to their shooting game.
This session aims to give a bit of structure to players' shooting, getting them to focus on hitting the target and making the keeper work with every shot, resisting the temptation to simply hit the ball as hard as they can!
Get any shot off towards the back post, whether it?s a sweep or a push to put it on a plate for a deflection into the goal.
Give everyone on the team the confidence to take the ball under pressure, beat a player with their 1-on-1 skills, then move it on.
Baffle your opponents with the illusion of an extra man - coach your players to move positively with overlapping.
Don't stop moving! Speed up gameplay by working on your junior players' ability to pass and receive on the run!
Help your players spot defender's weaknesses, especially when the odds are stacked in their favour - and make the overload count!
