    10m x 12m grid

    Two balls placed as illustrated, one ball each by the middle markers.

  • Process

    - GK's will start on the ground, laying flat on their stomach.

    - Coach will assign who's the FW and GK.

    - On the coaches command the FW and GK will both quickly get up. The FW must approach one ball (cannot change mind once the FW approaches a ball).

    - The GK must look to quickly close down space in front of the FW to either handle the ball safely or deny the FW movement to dribble pass the line.

    - If the GK safely handles the ball, he/she puts the ball down and tries to dribble with the ball pass the line. The FW must try to deny the GK from dribbling pass the line.
