you will have better ball control, but shooting is a bit different than ball control, you're probably better off shooting with a full size ball since it is more game realistic, and must harder to strike a small ball. Plus, you're better off starting off easier by using a full size ball.

A wall might be pretty expensive depending on what kind you want, but I'm not really sure, so probably getting a full sized net is good, depending on the size of your yard. Although, you can just build a fence, but I prefer a wall because the ball rebounds back.

However long it takes to get 50 shots with both feet.

Can i use a tennis ball and stand 3 metres back. Because then i can do 100 with each everyday. Would it be better if i do it like that or the same or worse.

what i do when i can't get outside , in my front room with a mini ball , have a coffee table , and trand aim at the different corners of it , i also have a gap between the sofa and the wall , so i aim inbetween it , and its tight so its good practice , and i also aim for the pilows on the sofa , simple things like this will help you improve greatly , ive been doing this for a while and the season is coming to a near and we have started to train again and in the mini matches at training , all my shots are on target and im successful most of the time .

great post as usual jdefoe , good job

Just letting you know that I've been doing this drill for 2-3 weeks now, and it's helped tremendously. I'm now the best penalty kick taker on my team, and while that's not much of an accomplishment for anybody, it's a large improvement over my shooting before I started doing this drill. Thanks a lot jdefoe
