Split Dodge and Find a Cutting Midfielder!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, February 9, 2016

St. Joseph’s University associate head coach and offensive coordinator, Dan Keating, has helped lead the school to back-to-back undefeated conference seasons in 2014 and 2015. In this clip, Coach Keating demonstrates a drill that works on dodging and passing to a cutter for a shot close to the goal.

Money Cut Drill

Drill Summary: One player begins behind the net with a ball and the other starts about 15 yards in front of the net. The player below the goal begins to split dodge. Meanwhile, the midfielder doesn’t clog the corner for the ball carrier and instead works on taking their defender away before cutting up the lane. The player below the goal comes up and passes to the cutting midfielder, who accelerates through the cut with their stick near their ear/face as a vertical target. Once receiving the pass, the midfielder shoots on goal. Do the drill on both sides of the field.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Timing.
2) Set the defender up.
3) Accelerate through the cut.
4) Accurate pass.
