soccer coaching game to improve shooting accuracy
|Objective: to improve shooting
Age group: U10s upwards
Set up: Split your players into teams of three or four.
Create a rectangular or circular pitch about 20 yards long/across for each pair of teams.
Place four small goals, equally spaced, around the perimeter of the pitch.
Place a triangular cone or other small target in the corners of each goal.
Tip: I use teddy bears as the targets with my U12s. Not sure what it says about them but they seem to enjoy hitting teddies more than cones!
How to play: Teams compete to score the most goals in a set time.
If a shot hits one of the cone (or teddy) targets, it counts double.
Progression: players to score with their first touch only
Add two 'keepers who each have two goals to defend.
