Follow us on Twitter: @SoccerWizdom and me on Instagram: @PierceHughCampbell


1. Have the penalty taker take 10 Pks.
2. When he or she is done have them do it again.
3. Repeat the process multiple times.

Focus on the player’s ball striking technique when taking the penalty *

Coaching Points:

1. It is a mental game between you and the keeper. Is he or she giving you any clues on where to finish? Can you confuse the keeper with your eyes or run up?
2. Aim for one of the five corners (between the legs is the fifth corner). Trust your instincts.
3. Eye on the ball.
4. Type of shot.
5. Part of the foot/ball.
6. Locked ankle.
7. Curled toes.
8. Follow through.
