Battle Box

A fun game focusing on speed of play dribbling and shooting. Players goals only count if they shoot from inside the box.

Player 1 dribbles into the box and shoots at goal. Once he shoots he must run back to he's goal and become the goalkeeper. As soon as the shot happens the next player in line for the other team (diagram white) can dribble into the box ready to shoot. The process repeats with that white player running back to his goal while the next member of the black team runs towards the box. The first team to five wins the game.

Coaching Points:

Quality and technique of shot

Awarness of goalkeeper
