Teaching goal scoring to U9,U11,U13,U14,U15,U16 using the MLS playoffs as great examples of

pressure strikes at goal. Working in the attacking third to keep the ball moving to open space wide,

then angle back into the 6 yd/14 yd danger area is the goal of any good offensive attack. Using ball

flicks off throw in head balls to excellent follow up on half volley shots, the goal is to spread out so

defensive deflections can become sometimes your best assist. In the Sporting KC match, you will see

both, a defensive deflection in front of the net right to Aurelien Collins and a beautiful half volley follow up

from Seth Sinovic. Another important offensive technique is the free kick cross into dangerous area,

witness Morales from Real Salt Lake not only do it once but twice in the same match for great scoring

opportunities. Crossing the ball into the 6 to 14 yard mark is so important but the spacing of the players

not to all go into the same area is even more important for the chance of the ball coming open to a

better shooting angle. These MLS videos are excellent for teaching goal scoring to U9,U11,U13,U14,U15,U16 players.
