Shooting for Power and Placement

with Brianne Tierney,
Lebanon Valley College Head Woman's Coach,
former collegiate star at Colgate 
Improve the power and accuracy of your shots!

Brianne Tierney guides you through a progressive sequence of drills to teach individual power shooting and effective shot placement. 

Coach Tierney begins with a warm-up series of individual drills to isolate power shot technique from the hands to the core to the legs, culminating in a game-like, time-and-room shot. She highlights frequent errors in hand placement, footwork, and follow-through to help players build a firm foundation for shooting. 

Once excellent shooting form is in place, Coach Tierney executes a series of ready-to-use drills helping players master good shooting form under game-like situations -- with plenty of hidden conditioning.

These drills will:

•Develop hand strength and form for a variety of shots.
•Pressure players to handle loose balls and errant passes near the crease and maintain good footwork into a high-perentage shot. 
•Force players to finish under pressure in the fan.
•Emphasizing aggressive attacking angles from the 8-meter forcing goalies out of their comfort zones and set up pinpoint finishes.
•Run players through a full range of offensive situations, seamlessly integrating attacking off-ball motion and feeding from X into a fast-paced, high-touch drill.
The drills are diagrammed and walked through prior to being performed by players, which will help you completely understand the purpose and execution of each drill. Tierney also uses effective "Coaching Points" throughout the video to reinforce proper technique.

Coach Tierney's shooting drills will help your players hone their attacking mentality and gain confidence in front of the net. Build them into your practices or off-season program and watch your offensive production grow.

Whether viewed by a coach or player, this DVD will show how to score more goals through correct power shooting and effective shot placement. 58 minutes. 2012. DVD.

Practice Drills and Team Progressions

with Brianne Tierney,
Lebanon Valley College Head Woman's Coach,
former collegiate star at Colgate 

Develop a practice plan that takes a teaching point from individual skills to full team play

Brianne Tierney stresses two main themes in practice: Fun and Fundamentals. Coach Tierney has compiled a live practice DVD filled with ideas to run a practice that maximizes touches for all players, will keep your team moving, and will develop fundamentals all while having fun. 

Coach Tierney's practice opens with a warm-up of Partner Passing, putting her players through a variety of different throwing and catching sequences. Tierney teaches you how to address the proper mechanics of throwing and catching with your players.

After the warm-up, Tierney's players get moving in the Tiger Tails Drill, which emphasizes defensive footwork and aggressiveness in a fun and exciting way. The ""Mirror Drill"" teaches players how to address the ball carrier and how to drive them down one side of the field. The team also competes in the 2 v. 2 Fireball Drill, which involves transition offense and defense.

Tierney's teaching point of the practice is the ""give and go,"" and her team works on this through a shooting drill, a full-field transition drill, a half-field drill, and a scrimmage situation. In the Drive Double Drill, on top of the offensive aspects of half-field play, Tierney stresses that her team communicates on defense, and teaches slides, help defense, and seeing the field better. 

Coach Tierney uses a marker board to introduce most drills to her team, and then reinforces the plan as the team completes the drill. She keeps her players moving throughout incorporating conditioning into many drills and maximizes the repetitions of each player.

Brianne Tierney provides you with an example of how to run a practice and teach a particular skill from start to finish; all while keeping a positive and fun atmosphere. 54 minutes. 2012. DVD.
