- Use an 18 yard area for each attacking set up
- Run two shooting sessions at the same time using the two goal set up in the diagram so your players are getting more time on the ball.
- The player at the front of the queue on each side plays the ball into an attacker positioned side-on to the passer and with their back to goal.
- The attacking player lets the ball roll across their body, takes one-touch to play the ball into position before turning and shooting with their other foot.
- The attackers shoot to score by hitting the corners of the goal. Repeat the session for each player.
How to advance it
- You can add a defender to close down and pressure the attacking player.
- Tell your attacking player they must play the ball with both feet – one to control and one to shoot.
- Instead of a first time shot, get your attackers to run one-on-one with the goalkeeper and try to score.
Change it so they have to lob the goalkeeper
Key coaching tips:
- Tell your players that each part of the session is important – concentrate on passing a good ball to the attacker so they can control it easier and concentrate on the turn and quality of the shot whether they are trying to lob the goalkeeper or drive it low into the corner of the net.
- Highlight the turn to your attackers. Show them how it must be done, and stop the session if they are not doing it right. You can use one of your more skilful players to show them if you cannot do it yourself!
- Tell them they must be quick so that in a match they can create a shooting opportunity.
