Shooting Combo, 1v1 Shooting Drill

Drill Objective:

This is a great shooting drill that focuses on making a move before shooting, making a 1-2 combination play before shooting, then taking on a defender 1v1 before shooting.

Drill Setup:

Create 3 lines (Line 1, 2, & 3) of players about 30 yards from goal with a goalkeeper in goal. Each player in line needs a ball.

Drill Instructions:

  1. Instruct line 1 to make a move and shoot before the edge of the penalty box.
  2. After player 1 shoots, they need to check into player 2 for a 1-2 ball. Player 1 should lay the ball off to player 2 for a first time shot.
  3. After player 2 shoots, they move to defend the player in line 3. Player 3 should beat player 2 and have a shot on goal.
  4. The players should not change lines yet. Let each player work through their line 3-4 times before switching lines.

Drill Coaching Points:

  • Focus on good shooting technique, landing on the kicking foot, following through towards goal, and putting the ball on target.
  • Kids should pay attention and remember their next task after shooting.
