Description of Drill-Execution

Two lines of players are stationed at the top of the restraining box. Each 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 back goal. Players should be shooting over the first goal, from about 2 yards away, into the back goal. As player technique improves, shots should get lower and lower into the back goal.
