Week Five: Passing and Shooting

Can you feel the energy and enthusiasm of your soccer players? Bet you do.

In this week, we'll continue to develop your players' passing skills. Specifically, we'll focus on improving their in-step control, their passing accuracy, and their ability to read the defense. We'll begin with a few passing drills, and then as a progression, we'll introduce the skill of shooting with a few exercises to reinforce the fundamental concepts. When teaching your young players how to shoot on goal, be sure to emphasize shot accuracy over power. Week Five covers a lot of ground but keeps players comfortable in primarily non-pressurized practice situations.

This Week's Review:
