Combination Shooting Drills
This is a shooting drill that focuses on combination play and building up quickly for a shot on goal.
Create two fairly small triangles about 15 yards from each other and approximately 5 yards outside the penalty box. You can adjust the distance from the goal based on the age and skill level of your players.
Place a player on each cone with the remaining players lined up outside of the triangle area.
You will need a large supply of balls per triangle.
COMBINATION SERIES 1
Player 1 starts the first series by passing to player 2.
Player 2 passes to player 3.
Player 3 lays a ball into space near the top of the penalty box where player 1 can hit a first-time shot on goal.
COMBINATION SERIES 2
Player 1 passes to player 2.
Player 2 then passes to player 3.
Player 3 returns the ball to player 1.
Player 1 lays off a ball into space for player 3 to hit a first-time shot on goal.
Switch sides the players shoot so players are shooting left and right footed.
Be creative and make up other combinations as they are limitless.
