Week Eight: Shooting Introduction

This week includes drills and lessons that teach the basics of shooting. When teaching your players how to shoot the ball, begin by building upon the in-step technique that they used earlier in the season for various passing drills. This will help your players to understand proper body positioning and footwork for shooting and to apply lessons learned around accuracy and timing. Remember that it's important for players at this age level to emphasize shot control and shot selection over power.
