Heart Academy - Sample Drill on Goal Scoring

Goal Scoring is always fun but as coaches we can make it enjoyable too.
A good way to work on 7 yard area and brave body positions is to bring the Tennis ball and Tennis racquet out so that we can teach the ability to be brave and watch the ball when crosses come through. Give it a try…..
