Offense, Defense, Midfield, Goalie
Improve your team’s ability to clear the ball down the field with a standard clear off a shot.
Description of Drill-Execution
This drill is a standard way to clear the ball off a shot. It is more of a play than a drill. Set up a full field game, and have the ball with your goalie on one side. Set your teams up in a playing situation, have the offense shoot and the go into a straight clearing situation with the defense.
Once your team has cleared the ball, have an attack player gather the ball, shoot, and then the other team will re-clear in the same settled manner.
