This is about your front two hunting down the ball, winning it and attacking together. It’s great for encouraging attackers to develop a relationship so communication is effective and scoring chances are increased. MORE

AVOID THE KEEPER
“Shoot into the goal” • “Kick to the side of the goalkeeper”
Set up the activity with one goal, a cone 5 yards away and another cone 1 yard further back. Put three players, each with a ball, behind the second cone and a goalkeeper in the goal.
When you say “go”, the player runs with the ball from the second cone to the first cone and shoots at the goal.
The movement between the cones allows players to take a pace or two with the ball before shooting, as the ball should always be moving unless you are practicing penalties.
When the player shoots he should follow through with his kick so the ball is propelled to the goal – tell players they should “kick to the side of the goalkeeper”.
How many players do I need?
Players work in threes with a goalkeeper.
