Banana Cut, Receive a Pass and Score!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, May 10, 2016

St. Joseph’s University assistant head coach and offensive coordinator, Dan Keating, explains a shooting drill that mimics a common element in the 1-3-2 offense. Players will practice coming off a banana cut, receiving a pass from a teammate, then firing a shot on goal.

Step Down Shooting

Drill Summary: Set up with two cones 10 yards in front of the goal on the goal lines extended. Place a bucket of balls five yards to the side of the goal. Players form single file lines next to the bucket and just in front of the cone that’s furthest away from the bucket.

One by one, players in the line next to the cone approach the first cone, plant their feet, then banana cut around the second cone. As the banana cut is occurring, the first player in the bucket line prepares to fire a pass to the cutter. On the pass, the cutter prepares to receive the ball in triple threat position with their shoulders locked in to the target. Catch the ball with soft hands and fire a shot on the near or far side of the goal. Switch lines after passing and shooting.

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.
