Practice Alley Dodges with a Drill from John Desko!

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.

Get Better at Shooting with Momentum Near the Goal!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, September 8, 2015

In the Duke offense, players often start on one side of the field, cut across to receive a pass, then step down to take a shot. Ron Caputo, assistant coach for the Blue Devils, trains players to mimic this crossing motion in the “Step Down Shots” drill to help prepare them for games.

Step Down Shots

Drill Summary: Form a line of players about five yards from the side of the goal, and form another line about 10 yards in front of the goal on the opposite side. One at a time, players in front of the goal take a banana cut and receive a pass from the player at the front of the other line. After receiving the pass, fire a shot at the far side post. Be sure to switch lines after passing and shooting.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Take a banana cut. Don’t run straight across the field.
2) Catch and shoot the ball with your momentum going toward the goal.
3) Aim for the far side post.
4) It’s okay to miss wide – focus on instincts, not on accuracy.
