Boston Cannons’ Midfielder and CoachUp Coach, Mike Stone, demonstrates how to perform the time and room shot. Always remember the acronym B.E.E.F.; body, eyes, elboys, and follow through.
Mike Stone: I’m Mike Stone, midfielder for the Boston Cannons and CoachUp coach. And this is time and room shooting. Shooting is an essential part of the game. Time and room shooting means you have time to set up your shot and room from your defensemen to deliver a hard and accurate shot at the goal. For a hard and accurate shot, think of the acronym B-E-E-F. BEEF stands for Body, Eyes, Elbows, and Follow-through. To start off, you wanna make sure your body is sideways to the goal. You always want your eyes aiming the shot, looking directly where you want the ball to go, with your elbows high and away. And as you step and shoot, accentuate your follow-through, coming all the way to the ground and scraping the ground outside your front leg during your follow-through.
