COACHING SESSION: SHOOTING FROM SQUARE PASSES 2
 

1) Two shooting sessions take place simultaneously. The servers play the ball into the attackers who are positioned side-on to the passer and with their backs to goal.

2) Here, each player lets the ball roll across his body, takes one-touch to play the ball out from their body before shooting with their other foot.

3) Both players hit the target with one scoring. The session is repeated for each player.
