Progression on shooting drill below

Can I add a defender for some added pressure

why is the likely hood of there shooting accuracy going to be poor and how would you improve it during this from a progression

Hi Rohan.


Here's a good drill to add some progression! It brings in a defender to add a fun and competitive element to the game with this head to head style! It also works on speed and agility to get out to the ball as well as a players' ability to beat the defender one on one!

Description:

Number 2 groups of players from 1-5 and get them to stand on either side of the goal.

  1. Call a number. The two players (one from each side) whose number was called race around the cones to enter the area.
  2. When a player has entered through the gate the coach feeds the ball to the side where the first player has entered.
  3. Player runs onto the ball and tries to score before the other player can make a challenge/block.

Coaching Points:

The coach can make this practice easier / harder depending on the angle and speed of their pass.

To give the defending player a chance to catch up make the pass more difficult - alternatively to encourage quick finishing coach can play a pass into the path of the first player through the gate.
