Soccer Where….From?

Ask your soccer players “Where will the other soccer team score from’” The answer is, “In front of our soccer goal“. Repeat this often until they have it memorized. You must teach them to protect the area in front of your goal & have enough defenders in front of the soccer goal to not let the attackers get clean shots, but you must also leave forwards out (a long pass away) so you have a way to outlet the ball. As players get older, attacks will be less direct & more scores will come from “crossed soccer balls“. But, still, most scores will occur “in front of the goal”. This is even true for the pros.

Soccer Danger Zone

(aka Soccer Scoring Zone and Soccer Danger Area). The area extending out from the soccer goal in which most shots occur that actually score. The size of this depends on the soccer player’s age. Generally, most goals are scored in the “center”, so it is much safer to clear the soccer ball to the side than down the center. (See “Attacking Third” and “Where…From’“).
