Soccer training – Goal shots – Soccer drill selection

What we are practising: shots with and without previously controlling the ball, after dribbling and after combinations of passes. It doesn’t matter whether the players are beginners or highly experienced; just make adjustments to the level of difficulty to put together a programme of training which is appropriate for your team.

Goal shots: the basics

What is a goal shot?

Is there anything more beautiful in soccer than a goal shot? Dynamic energy, the goalkeeper flies through the penalty area, the ball hits the back of the net, celebrations, and the goal-scorer is congratulated by spectators, team-mates and trainers. That’s a goal shot. Scoring a goal is one of the best experiences in the game of soccer, which is why additional motivation by the soccer coach is not often necessary: for a soccer player, no moment is sweeter than the moment he scores a goal. Goal shot drills are essential in children’s soccer, because of the way they maintain the children’s passion for the game.

Training units for goal shot training

Now all that’s needed is the right training drills. We’ve put together a wide selection of goal shot training drills, but many other drills from different areas can also be combined with the goal shot to introduce a little variation.

Now let’s look at goal shot technique. We’ve focused on the theory behind many different techniques. We recommend that you make practical use of this basic theoretical knowledge.

  • The side foot pass
  • The lofted pass
  • The instep drive
  • Soccer technique – Drop kick

Many training sessions are much easier to organise with the use of mobile goal posts. The goal posts should be sunk well into the ground in order to avoid accidents. Goal shot training is always carried out in small groups, in order to avoid long waiting times. Organise your training sessions well, and choose targeted drills. Goal shot training is probably the most important part of team training and sports lessons, and provides players (children, youths, adults) with much-needed enjoyment and motivation.

Information: There are already more than 1,000 animations online at www.soccerdrills.de, as well as plenty of interesting articles by very well-known soccer experts.

If you don’t want to wait for the translations, you can take a look at Soccerdrills.de. The animations often speak for themselves.

Soccer Techniques- Drop Kick

Drop Kick

The dropkick is largely similar to a volley. With the drop kick however, in contrast to the volley, the ball touches the ground during the shot. The best introduction to this technique is as follows: hold the ball with both hands–let it fall –dropkick. . The next step is similar ...
