Opposed shooting- how to score more goals

Opposed shooting- how to score more goals

I need some opposed shooting drills to improve my teams goal scoring ratio. Unopposed drills have not been working, and I really need to avoid cueing - any ideas ?

Hi James,

Opposed shooting drills are great as they have a much greater representation of what you would likely face in a match situation. As you say, they also get more people involved in the drill to maintain player engagement and stop players getting cold!

Here's a great drill to get you started! You can find more like this under the 'Shooting & Goalscoring' drills tab!
