Teaching Shielding Techniques And Free Kick Success

Around the wall free kick

 

 

 

Teaching shielding techniques and free kick success can give an offense some quick opportunities

to score a big goal. Learning how to hold onto the ball and shielding from defenders can be a way

to get a foul, setting up your offense for a game turning goal. Back in youth soccer we used Coerver

System and worked with feints, hard chops at cutting with the ball, and just keeping your body between

the ball/defender. Quick starts and stops with the ball and giving up some ground to buy time for support

help to show as you maintain control is so important to making the defense to react to you. Sometimes

the defense creates a foul, giving your offense a free kick. Misdirection is always the key to a good free

free kick. Keep defenders guessing who on the offense might get the shot. Making false runs with

offensive players keeps the defenders less focused on the shooter. Having players fake as if they are

going to shoot can freeze the defense for that one split second for the real shot to go through. If you

have a good set play and want to share it with TheSoccerInfo staff, please send it through our contact

us page. Enjoy the video examples about teaching shielding techniques and free kick success can give

an offense some quick opportunities to score a big goal.
