EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS SOCCER COACHES

Six Shooter

The Rules

Split players into three teams of three.

The keeper serves to the first attacking team which uses free play to get a shot through to the opposition goal as quickly as possible.

After a shot or goal the keeper serves to the opposition.

You coach at the side with a good supply of balls.

The games last three to five minutes. Then you rotate the teams.

Record all player’s possible shots, shots taken, shots on target and shots off target on a notepad. Use this information to feedback to players and then set new targets to help improve play.
