Shooting from Circle Skills

 

DRILL OBJECTIVE(S)

DEVELOP ELIMINATION SKILLS AT EDGE OF CIRCLE

SHOOTING REPETITION

PLAYERS 6+ PLAYERS
SPACE 30m TO GOAL
EQUIPMENT 20+ BALLS

EXPLANATION:

  • Balls start in center of field behind 23m line.
  • X1 passes ball to X2 (X1 follows pass to X2 position). X2 receives, lifts ball over cones at edge of circle and shoots (X2 clears out and goes to the back of the passing line).
  • Next player in passing line passes ball to X3 (and follows pass). X3 carries ball through cones and shoots (then clears to back of passing line).
  • Next player passes to X4 (and follows pass). X4 pulls wide around line of cones, and shoots (then clears to back of passing line).
  • Repeat. 

VARIATIONS:

  • Set up cone groups at different angles (eg closer to endline) to work on different angles of circle entry and shot.

COACHING POINTS:

  • Give plenty of repetition for these skills, and allow players to try different moves.
  • Ball stays tight to stick with all skills going into the circle.
  • Shoot near the edge of circle as soon as elimination skill has been completed (No shots from within 10m).

EVALUATION:

  • Player should be able to move at speed through/around/over cones without stopping.
  • With each elimination move, there should be a change of speed as well as change of direction.

PROGRESSION:

  • LTT: Same.
  • TTC: Receiver moves the ball with the first touch towards cones (defender).
  • TTW: Incorporate reverse stick receptions. Incorporate first touch skills to get through cones (for example, first time lift over flat stick going into circle).
