Professional Finishing Exercise:

Finishing Exercise

Grid: 50×12 yards with 2 Regular Goals Players: 17 Players

Key Points and Instructions:

5v5 with 6 outside neutral players and 2 keepers (the coach serving the balls in from the outside can operate as a neutral player). The team in possession can score on either goal. If possession is lost, the new team in possession must use an outside neutral player first before scoring. This exercise is similar to exercise number six because it combines possession and shooting in a very tight area. Players should have patience when shooting angles are blocked, quick play, using 1-2 combinations and finding even slight shooting angles to exploit the defense are all key points. Variations: two-touch restrictions, free play, scoring directly without using outside players.

Long & Narrow Shooting
