Warm Up, Skill
This drill should be practiced at full speed. Holding back on one’s motion for accuracy will only hinder their shot in a game situation.
Description of Drill-Execution
Scatter 8 to 12 balls within the box area. 1 player goes at a time. The shooter practices scooping up the balls and shooting in one continuous motion at full speed. This drill also teaches the importance of planting the foot and pointing the toe at the goal at the release of the shot.
- Shooting at full speed
- Ground balls
- Shot strength and accuracy
