Improve Your Shooting with Tennis Balls!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, January 12, 2016

High Point University head coach, Jon Torpey, is fresh off leading the Panthers to a Southern Conference championship. Coach Torpey teaches players a drill in this clip that requires them to make a pass to a teammate and shoot to the far third of the goal, improving accuracy of both passes and shots.

Shooting With Tennis Ball

Drill Summary: Form a line about 15 yards in front of the goal and set a cone roughly 12 yards in front of the net. Every other player in line should have a tennis ball. The first player runs up and makes a move on the cone, then darts to the right at an angle. Once they’ve ran about 5 yards, they turn and run backward, then throw a follow pass to the next person in line. The person receiving the pass get it just on the right of the cone and shoots the ball toward the far third of the goal.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Aim for the far third of the goal.
2) Full speed cuts.
3) Hands far down the shaft (shooter).
4) Accurate shots and passes.

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, November 10, 2015

Five time National Championship head coach at Syracuse University, John Desko, teaches his players how to shoot off alley dodges in this fun exercise. Your goalies will also get the opportunity to improve their positioning while defending against long-distance shots during this drill.

Alley Dodges

Drill Summary: Set up with a goalie in the net and a line of shooters 25 yards in front of the goal. Each player in the line should have a ball. One at a time, players run forward, dodge to the left or right, and fire a shot on goal after dodging. Shots should come from about 10 yards in front of the goal at an angle. As players are shooting, goalies should be working on their saving technique.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Shoot from outside the goal posts extended.
2) Goalies shouldn’t rush to the post.
3) Goalies should hold on the back side for a split second.
4) Goalie should think about what the shooter sees.
