Skill introduction

In this exercise, set up agility posts in a square formation to form 4 goals.

Have a GK in between each set of posts and with other playerson the outside of the area (the size of the area and goals will depend on your age group - make as relevant to the game as possible)

The players (red) on the outside are asked to shoot frequently by "finishing" past the GK.

A shot should carry through to the other side for another player to have another shot. Keep the game flowing and encourage players to pass past the keeper.

Change keepers often and give players a go at both roles.
