Description

Instruct both teams to attack the three-sided goal.
The Goalkeeper should defend all three sides of the goal.
If a team scores a goal a point is awarded to the team and the ball is live on the other side of the goal.
If the goalkeeper makes a save, he is to distribute the ball into open space away from players.
For a goal to count, the ball must cross through the goal no higher than the top of the flag or training stick.
Variations
Only allow a shot on goal after X number of passes.
Play in 1 or 2 touches

Coaching Points

Focus on all aspects of the game such as passing, receiving, moving with and without the ball, defending, attacking, and finishing.
The players will have to work together as a team to quickly off-balance the defender and catch the goalkeeper off guard.
