Soccer drill procedure

The start of the drill should be far enough from the goal to allow the players to gain speed. If the players come too close to the goal, the goalkeeper is allowed to intervene.


The players start at the same time. The red player sprints to the left or the right, past the black player, receives the pass, and makes a shot at the goal, all from a sprinting position.


- Shoot again if the ball hits the post
- Different goal shot techniques

Soccer coach tips

- Always train using both legs!
- Correct errors individually
- Use the momentum from the sprint when making the goal shot
- Keep running to make a second shot
