To improve individual shooting technique and accuracy
Description of Drill-Execution
One line of players is stationed at the top of the restraining box. The line has plenty of balls for each player to get 5-10 shots. The players will make a “dummy” dodge towards the goal and then take an overhand shot at the goal while on the run. Players should be shooting overhand to ¾ and rotating their hips so that they end up backpedaling after the shot.
- Strong and Weak Hand Play
Variations/Progression/Increased difficulty (As your players improve their skills incorporate the following…)
Vary the type of dodges required of the shooter. Have the shooters switch sides of attack to work on shooting with both hands. Allow all player positions to shoot. The coach can stand near the goal and force shooters to run past him to ensure players are running towards the goal when shooting.
