The equipment is placed on the field as indicated in image number 1.
The players are positioned on the field as indicated in image number 2.
When the instructor blows the whistle, the referee and the assistant referee begin to perform the exercise as indicated in the numerical sequence, ending in the penalty kick position.
The referee signals for the penalty kick. The players commit infringements as per Law XIV.
Once the action is finished, the referee and the assistant referees cool down for the indicated time and conduct the same exercise in the opposite direction.
The work with the assistant referees is carried out on both sides of the field and starts simultaneously, but only the assistant referee concerned takes part in the technical decisions.
The referee starts the exercise from cone nº 1 with a forward run (10 m) to cone nº 2, followed by a backwards run (10 m) to cone nº 3 and then, a forward run (10 m) to cone nº 4. He continues with a forward side run (5 m) to cone nº 5, followed by a forward run (5 m) to cone nº 6, and a forward side run (5 m) to cone nº 7. It ends with a forward run between the two cones on the halfway line towards the decisionmaking area.
The referee controls the taking of the penalty kick and penalizes infringements which occur before, during or after the kick has been taken regarding the position of the ball, the position of the players other than the kicker, the identification of the kicker, etc.
The referee divides his attention to capture every incident taking place at the penalty kick. As the demand for attention, perception and decision-making skills increase as a result of simultaneous infringements, both the attacking and the defending team will follow the assistant referee’s information.
The assistant referee starts the exercise from cone nº 1 (5 m from the halfway line), with a forward run (5 m) to cone nº 2. He continues with a forward side run (5m) to cone nº 3 and finishes with a forward run to his position.
The assistant referee positions himself at the intersection of the goal line with the perpendicular of the penalty area and controls any infringement by the goalkeeper, as well as whether or not the ball enters the goal.
The assistant referee decides whether the infringement is attributable to the goalkeeper and shares any information he may have on other eventual actions, if the referee requires him to do so.
The players follow the instructor’s directions to perform the exercise. Attackers and defenders follow the instructor’s directions to commit simultaneous infringements to make the exercise more complex.
The instructor blows the whistle at 30 second intervals, coordinates the groups taking part in the exercise and controls the execution of the exercise technique.
The instructor determines the infringements according to the Laws of the Game and instructs the players to commit them:
– Infringements by the goalkeeper
– Infringements by the kicker
– Infringements by players of the kicker’s team
– Infringements by players of the goalkeeper’s team
– Ball enters/does not enter the goal
The Instructor positions himself on the goal line, near the goal and on the opposite side of the assistant referee. In this position he can evaluate the exercise and make the relevant observations.
He checks the proper conduct of the exercise and notes, where appropriate, the necessary corrections.
