A Quick Inside Finishing Drill for 1 OR 2 Goalies at Once

We worked this drill with the boys this Fall during our Fall Training Program and it was a hit! This is a great way to work on seeing and stepping to the ball (can’t read the tennis racket) and getting tons of reps in footwork on inside shots off of feeds from behind. 

The step to the ball is a focal point, but just as much is the turn and re-settle prior to that step. This is a great way to get two goalies going at once if you’ve got the cages for it, and a fun warm-up just to get the feet moving.

Coaching points are:
-get the feet settled in the turn as quickly as possible
-re-step from the turn to the shot
-keeps hands high on the turn (no dip!)
