INSPIRATION | CONFIDENCE | SUCCESS

Netbusters

This session aims to improve the attitude to shooting at goal by concentrating on having a good first touch or by combining with team mates in order to create space for a shot.

What this session is about

  1. Shooting with power
  2. Scoring goals from outside the box
  3. Combining with team mates to create opportunities to shoot at goal

What to think about

  • A good first touch will set you up to shoot at goal correctly.
  • Can you disguise to shoot and then take the ball past the defender to shoot in more space?
  • Can you combine with a team mate by using a one-two or overlapping technique?

Use an area 50 yards long by 30 yards wide that is split into two end zones, each 15 yards in length and one central zone 20 yards in length. The game situation is played on a pitch 40 yards long by 30 yards wide.

What you get your players to do

The black player passes to the attacking white player. The attacker receives the pass and has one touch to shift the ball out of their feet and then shoot at goal.

The player is able to move anywhere they like inside the central zone before calling to receive a pass.

Immediately, after the shot, a white player at the side passes to a black player in the centre.

A black player passes to a white player who takes a touch and then shoots at goal.

Development

Both teams play inside the central zone with one player being neutral and playing for whichever team has possession of the ball.

The objective is to use the neutral player to create an overload situation where you can free a player on your team to shoot at goal.

Each team uses the neutral player to create an overload and shoot at goal.

Game situation

Play a small-sided game with normal rules. However, to encourage players to attempt shots at goal you can award one point for each shot on target and two points for each goal scored. That way, each shot that is accurate and on target is rewarded.
