As coaches we always have to make sure that we are working on game-like activities. A common drill that we see is players in a line outside the box taking shots on goal.
This seriously lacks in imagination!
The problem with this is that it’s not realistic. Hardly ever in a game is the ball placed perfectly on the ground so that a player can have a nice five step run up to the ball with no defenders between him and the ball.
In this video we demo an activity that will help teach your players how to create shots outside the box.
Activities like this are the cornerstone of what we call Ciplified Soccer.
