Striker Training (Beast Mode Soccer via

10 Mar

I didn’t like this drill at first; it seemed too contrived for my team / the level at which they play. But as I looked at it more and saw it in action, I realized that it fit this growing interest in simulating game situations, in the sense of creating ‘muscle memory’, so to speak, for situations (rather than for, say, individual moves). Not that I think that the exact scenario below will occur in a game, but I like the focus on the positive first touch, on the different moves, and on the finish with a shot. Not sure I’ll use it with my team, but wanted to have it to at least consider.
