improve shooting technique with this fun soccer coaching game
|(with thanks to Ken Dodson of the Chugiak
This game is called "Shoot, Save, Shoot", it may look a bit dull and it even has players standing in lines.
But young football players just love playing it.
I've used it with U6s to U14s and they've all enjoyed it. My U12 girls ask to play just about every week.
So give Shoot, Save, Shoot a try. I'm sure it will become one of your players' favourite games too.
Objective: To improve shooting technique.
Age range: U6s and upwards.
Set-up: Use a playing area with a standard-size goal at one end. Place a cone about 10 yards out from the left-hand post for very young players and about 20 yards away for older players.
Divide your players into two teams.
Team 1 stands about six yards from the left-hand post. Team 2 stands about six yards from the right-hand post.
You stand near the goal with five or six balls.
How to play:
Progression: Switch sides so that players
have to run to the left and right of the goal.
