Soccer drill procedure

A goal-shooting competition which promises to be exciting. In our animation, we’ve shown two groups of four competing against each other. If the player scores with his first shot, a team-mate passes another ball to him. If he also scores with this second ball, an extra point is awarded.


One group shoots at each goal. Each group of goal shooters consists of four players. We’ve put other players from each team next to the goal to pass balls when they are needed. Some distance away from the goals, we’ve laid out four balls on each side. Each group of four balls belongs to a group of four players. The players shoot one after the other, and may choose the ball which they shoot. If the shooter scores successfully, he is allowed a second shot. When this happens, one of his team-mates next to the goal passes a ball to him, which he shoots again. If he scores with this ball, another point is awarded. The group with the most points wins the game.


- Explain the shooting technique when the balls are still
- Time pressure! Have the players bring their players back to the point from which they were first played.
- Throw the second ball to the player, who receives it as a header.
