Combination Shooting Rotation Drill

Drill Objective:

This soccer shooting and finishing drill focuses on combination play and build-up before getting the shot off. It is a great shooting soccer drill to focus on burying the ball with a shot after a small combination play.

Drill Setup:

With two goals facing each other about 30 yards apart, place a goalkeeper in each goal. Set three flags at midfield on the left, center, and right sides of the field. On the left and right flags, place a cone 5 yards past the flags and set a player at each of these cones. Two players should start at the center flag, one player for each side of the drill. The remaining players should start along the endline with a ball each.

Drill Instructions:

Player 1 plays a ball into player 2. Player 2 checks to the ball and plays it back to player 1. Player 1 plays the ball into player 3. Player 3 lays off a ball to player 2. Player 2 has a timed run around the flag and shoots 1st time on goal. All players rotate forward one position (Player 1 becomes Player 2, Player 2 Becomes Player 3, Player 3 shags the ball).

Drill Coaching Points:

  • Good solid passes, play in 1 touch if possible.
  • Good timed movement and runs (don't get there too early).
  • Player prepping the touch for the shooter should simply lay the ball off for a good 1 time shot.
  • Good shooting form leaning forward through the ball, and landing on the kicking foot.

Drill Variations

Limit all passes and touches to ONE-TOUCH.
