23rd Training Session – “Hands down, crazy shooting” – 8/12/2016

This session was focusing on shooting again. We had some players that missed the previous shooting session and really wanted to do another one. We at AoF always want our players to feel happy and motivated, so with the high demand we decided that we would do one more session focusing on shooting.

However, I wanted to move away from all the basics now. I feel that the players are skilled enough to move in to some more advanced drills. The drills we did during this session was just the tip of the iceberg and we are slowly moving in the right direction with the pace of the drills and session as a whole. The shooting drills we did was a step higher in sense of concentration and dedication to becoming a better player.

We didn’t have that many players that showed up, nonetheless I want to thank all of those who did come, the number of attendance doesn’t matter to me, and it shouldn’t for you either. We had a great session and so much improvement was shown from the whole group. I want to give a special shout out to Bart who had an extraordinary session. Wearing only running shoes his shots were spot on. In the beginning I could see the struggle, but as the session went on, Bart pulled off some amazing shots! Even a volley shot that threw off me completely off guard. So WELL DONE Bart!!

An overall great session, we talked a lot about detailed things when shooting while running or after a dribble, what to think about and how to execute correctly. Again, I always say that I am impressed with the players, and I’ll never stop! I believe in a high motivational approach in a sense that I will push you to your very limit until you are the future player you want to become!! Well done all so far! Only a few more sessions, so make sure to show up for all of them! Cya next week guys and gals! 🙂
