COACHING SESSION: LAYOFF SHOOTING 3
 

1) Red passes to Blue and runs to the left of the cones.

2) Blue awaits Red and lays the ball off.

3) Red strikes first-time at goal and scores. Red now becomes the server and Blue's role is to follow the shots in. The situation is repeated with each player who lays the ball off, becoming an attacker to practice following shots in.

- Is also a good exercise of the goalkeeper to work on their own techniques.
