One-two, pass and shoot
COMBINE TO GOAL
“Use good dribbling technique” • “Pass and move” • “Try to shoot first touch”
Place two cones 5 yards apart, a cone gate another 3 yards on and target goal a further 5 yards on from the gate.
Put two players on the first cone, each with a ball, and a server to the side of the second cone.
Players dribble from the first cone towards the second, play a one-two with the server around the second cone and shoot, first time, through the gate into the goal.
After shooting, players run back round to the starting cone.
The one-two passing must be confident and crisp. If necessary, the server can take two touches – one to control the ball and one to pass the ball back for the working player to run onto.
How many players do I need?
Players work in threes.
