Shooting Clinic

USC shooting Clinic provides ambitious youth players who strive to improve their shooting technique which is broken down in several levels to help each player understand the fundamentals and aspects of shooting with a set curriculum.  Each based exercise is a step to the process of finding the correct shooting technique for each player.

Fundamentals of Shooting:
  • Get a good first touch that's out of your feet so you can take a shot right away.
  • Keep your knee and head over the ball.
  • Planting foot at correct distance next to the ball.
  • Land on your shooting foot when shooting with power (follow through).
  • Strike the center of the ball and strike through the ball.
  • Keep your toes pointed down and your ankle locked.
  • Decide whether you want to strike with power or place the ball into the corner.
  • Keep your hips square to your target or where you want to shoot the ball.
  • Take a look before you get the ball, know where the goal and the keeper are.
  • Keep your head down and over the ball when you take a shot.
  • Think about forcing the keeper to make a save - don't blast the ball as hard as you can.
  • Bend your knees and have a strong center of gravity - good balance.
  • Adjust to the ball by moving your feet so they are underneath you.

Areas of Focus:
  • Coordination and psycho-motor to improve shooting techniques.
  • Ensuring proper shooting technique (Driven, placement, curling, chipping, etc)
  • Power and Precision
  • 1v1 Technical to goal
  • One Touch Finishing
  • Vision and Awareness
Goalkeeping Training:
“A striker can miss multiple times and score once and become a hero, while a goalkeeper can make multiple saves and make one mistake and become a villain”

Our hope is to give our keepers the needed resources to be successful as a goalkeeper. For this reason we will be running a once a week goalkeeping clinic for all competitive goalkeepers.
