Set Up:

1 full goal

10 balls

2 small goals

3 coaching sticks

4 different colored bibs

Activity:

Activity starts with shot on goal - vary service types, scoop saves, basket, contour, collapsing, etc.

Small goals and training sticks are either given numbers or have a different colored training bib assigned to them.

After the save, coach calls out a color or number - goalkeeper distributes to that target

> Red line - Bowl / rolled ball

> Blue line - Overarm or sling throw

> Green line - Punt, drop kick or sidewinder

COACHING POINTS:

Acccurate service, played into or just ahead of target - not behind.

Ball gets to target quickly - do not give defending team time to recover and organize

Use correct technique

Variations:

With multiple goalkeepers, assign points for accurate services (eg. 1, 3, 5)

Change target distances to mandate other distribution types (baseball/javelin throw, ball struck from the floor, sidewinders, drop kicks, whip throw, etc)
