Soccer drill procedure

You should be a little bit careful before carrying out this drill. To avoid risks, you can forgo the blocking attempt. In this drill, the kicker alone decides when and from where to shoot. He must move sideways very dynamically for the shot on goal. The drill looks easier in the animation than it is in practice.


Two players have a ball and move towards the goal from the front, passing as they go. The kicker runs facing the goal and the other player runs backwards. The kicker decides when to control the ball and from which side he wants to shoot at the goal. To take the shot, he moves away from his teammate to have a free line to the goal. The teammate tries to block the shot.


- Increase or decrease the distance between the players.
- The shooter tries to get into a better position by faking the shot.

Soccer coach tips

- Blocking the shot requires some routine; you can skip this if necessary.
- The shooter takes the shot quickly
