Soccer drill to get players shooting with their left or right foot

Attackers who can shoot with either foot have more opportunities to score, so your players will be much better placed if they can score with the foot that naturally takes the ball towards goal. Use this soccer drill to help your young players practise shooting using either their left or their right foot.

Use an area 40 yards by 30 yards with two goals and two goalkeepers.

How to run the soccer drill

  • The shooter makes a long pass to the coach and runs to receive the ball back.
  • The player now shoots with one foot.
  • After shooting, the player reacts and runs to receive a second ball from another server and shoots with the other foot.

How to rotate it

After completing the circuit, the player becomes a server for the next shooter.
