confidence with shooting

I coach a player who practices shooting basically every day but cannot get them in when she is playing. The problem isn't to do with her technique but rather her confidence in her abilities is lacking. How can I build her confidence?

Hi Maggie,

Is she practicing shooting in a match scenario or is it uncontested shooting practice? Getting players to practice shooting under pressure in training will improve their ability to replicate this in match situations.

Hi Maggie,


Following on from Matt's answer. The main thing you can do is repetition to fully engrain the skill and build confidence through repeated success. It is also really important to replicate game situations, players maybe put under pressure or become tired during a game.


Here's a great drill I found that gets your shooters working under fatigue, by being able to produce a successful outcome when tired your players will find it easier come match day.


Hope this helps,


Archie

Tired Shooting

Description:

Players must sprint from one cone to another as fast as they can, making sure they bend down and touch each cone.

After the final cone they should drive into the circle to receive the pass from the coach.

Players must stop and play the shot as best they can.


Coaching Points:

This is a test to see how your players perform when tired - are they still able to shoot accurately or will their wobbly legs get the better of them?

Recovery time is the time it takes players to gently jog to the back of the line

Discussion:

Ask your players why is having a good level of fitness important?
