Goalkeeping Distribution (15 min)

Set Up: Players A & B Rotate shooting on goal as the GK make saves. On doing this the coach shouts out a number of a player and the goalkeeper then decides to throw or kick the ball to that player. The coach will mix up the distribution targets. Players combine to find 7/11 target goals.
