Drill of the Week: Lateral Shooting

  nnnnnn This Drill works players ability to score while running across the goal.As blanket defences force players and teams to move laterally, it is very important that players learn to get their foot "around the ball" without breaking stride.

Set up the drill with 3 groups and the poles as in the animation. The coach should act as a receiver and passer for a quick 1-2.

The poles act as markers for the players and to add a feeling of pressure.

Communication and timing of runs will be vital to "create a scoring chance" . Encourage the players to start close to goal and then work their way towards the 45 as they get more confident.
