soccer coaching game shoot, score, win!
game is designed to improve your players' ability to shoot quickly and
accurately. It will also encourage them to follow up on their shots,
which will result in your team scoring many more goals
The variation of this soccer coaching game is also a great workout for your goalkeepers.
How to play:
Key soccer coaching points: impress on your players the need to dribble at speed, shoot quickly and follow their shot. You can, if you wish, further encourage a "finishing" mentality by awarding two goals if a player scores from a fumbled shot.
Also, if the shooter does not follow her shot and get into goal quickly, the opposition will have an open goal to shoot at.
You probably won't need to, but make sure the next shooter doesn't wait for the goalkeeper to get ready. They should start to dribble at goal as soon as they have the ball.
Vary the distance to goal and the size of the goal so players can experience success then make it harder by increasing the distance to goal and making the goal smaller.
Encourage players to shoot hard.
Variation: choose one player to be the goalkeeper. The rest of the players take it in turns to dribble and shoot, ie. a player from team A shoots followed by a player from team B in quick succession. The goalkeeper has to work hard: save, turn, save, turn.
Note: although this game involves players waiting in line, the speed of the game means they should only be waiting for a few seconds.
