Teaching Players Head Ball Goals

Head ball goal NY Red Bulls

 

 

 

 

 

 

Teaching players head ball goals and how to keep the ball on frame. Many coaches know that

teaching players to head the ball downward helps in limiting balls going over the goal post.

This gives the ball a chance that the goalie might miss it and slip into the back of the net.

With the pace of the crossed ball, many times you really only need to redirect the ball not trying

increase the speed, just change the angle of the shot. Watching MLS matches, you will see pro

players trying just to redirect a cross with a flick of the head. The whole focus on any drill about

heading should result on forcing the ball lower towards the ground and a higher percentage of scoring.

Teaching players head ball goal techniques will put more goals per season on any club. [Read more…]
