shooting & finishing

(ages 9-14)

  
Our shooting and finishing training is a unique program that focuses on the most exciting aspect of the game—the art of finishing. This is not only tailored for forwards; but also for players looking to become a game changer. Customizing game-like scenarios and high-risk situations in and around the penalty area offers players a variety of ways to create chances, develop a scoring prowess and capitalize on opportunities. Our curriculum not only focuses on the technical and tactical pillars of the game, but also the mental side. Learning and practicing mental skills strengthens the ability to control thoughts, emotions and performance in pressured situations.

Each player will be sent a video assessment at the end of the program. Video assessment engages players’ interest to look more closely at their performance and technique.  This is an effective learning tool to improve self-assessment, good practice and training outcomes.

*Shooting & Finishing will run together with the goalkeeper program; utilizing the goalie versus striker approach.

Self-talk/Shooting Technique (Instep Drive, Volley’s, Chip)
Visualization/Breakaway
