The aim is to effectively hold space under pressure of a defender.


Organisation: 3 Players. 1 static feeder with 1 ball stands behind  the goal line, 1 defender  and 1 shooter (worker). The shooter  receives a pass from the feeder whilst holding space from the  defender and then takes a shot.

Coaching Points

  • Ensure passes from feeders are accurate and well timed.
  • When driving towards the post keep eyes up, focusing on the ball.
  • Stand closely behind defender and put hand back to reach for the ball.
  • After receiving the ball, steady your breathing whilst taking up a  balanced shooting position.
  • Exhale when executing the shot.


  • Defender moves to intercept ball.
