“Look at the ball then keep looking up when dribbling” • “Use a turn” • “Look up before you shoot” • “Aim for the corners”
Set up a 25 x 20 yards area with a goal at one end. Mark out the playing area with cones and poles as shown. Line up players in two teams on each of the outer cones.
Players take turns to dribble to the near cone, back around the middle cone and up to the far cone and around it. They then dribble to the shooting gate.
When a player reaches the shooting gate he must hit one of the target areas in the corners of the goal (either side of the poles).
Try to get players to use different feet from each side of the circuit when they shoot at goal.
The two teams should compete against each other to see who can score the most goals in the corner.
How many players do I need?
We used six players in two teams of three, but you can add more players to each team.
Good dribbling technique.
Players should have good control in the turn.
Vital both feet are used to shoot.
