All the balls on one side of the goal with the Coach. One player starts off as goalie, all other players are in line.

Description:

Players must let the ball cross the line, then stike it first time with their laces.

If you miss, you are goalie.

If you make it, you go back in line.

If you kick it OVER the crossbar, you are OUT of the game (shag balls for coach).

If you are goalie, and you get scored on 3 times in a row, you are OUT of the game (shag balls).

If you are the player who scores the 3rd goal on the goalie, you are now goalie.

Variation:

Each game you change the way the players strike the ball.

Game #1: Shoelaces

Game #2: Inside the foot

Game #3: All left foot

Game #4: All right foot

This game never stops moving. The coach plays a pass to the next player in line immediately after the player shoots the ball. Player must sprint to their next spot (GK, back of line, or shagger).
