Combination Shooting Drills

Drill Objective:

This shooting drill focuses on combination play and building up for a shot on goal. There are multiple combination ideas to make the shooting drill more difficult progressively.

Drill Setup:

  1. 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.
  2. Place a player on each cone with the remaining players lined up outside of the triangle area.
  3. You will need a large supply of balls per triangle.

Drill Instructions:

  1. Player 1 starts the first series by passing to player 2.
  2. Player 2 passes to player 3.
  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.
  1. Player 1 passes to player 2.
  2. Player 2 then passes to player 3.
  3. Player 3 returns the ball to player 1.
  4. Player 1 lays off a ball into space for player 3 to hit a first-time shot on goal.

Drill Coaching Points:

Focus on the following topics:
  1. Good passing combination to feet while playing in 1 touch.
  2. Good fluid movement keeping the body under control
  3. Finishing with a shot on target.
  4. Focus on body mechanics when striking the shot.

Drill Variations

  • Switch sides the players shoot so players are shooting left and right footed.
  • Be creative and make up other combinations as they are limitless.¬†
