Improve Finishing | Skill Practice (09-P1)

Organisation / Set Up
In this Technical practice, we have 4 passing players on the outside of the 18 yard Box with 3 or 4 balls each. Attacking players begin in the central square, attacking 1 player at a time with the objective for a single attacking player to finish 4 chances against Goalkeeper. Once a player has 4 shots, they move to back of the player line and next player steps up to repeat; progressions below.
 
Key Coaching Point | 1
  • The movement to get on the ball must be sharp - game tempo.

  • Adjust to different types of pressure and identify how your game changes as a result of these passive defenders being introduced.
