Score a goal (U7 game)


Score a goal


“Shoot into the goal” • “Kick to the side of the goalkeeper”

Set up a 10 x 10 yards area with the corners of the area cut off from the centre to the goal posts.

Play 3v3, first without the goalkeeper then include the goalkeeper to make it more realistic to the game.

The idea of the game is to roll balls onto the pitch and tell players to shoot whenever they can.

This is all about technique with eyes on the ball, head over it, standing leg beside the ball and a good side-foot shot.

How many players do I need?

This game uses six players, in a 3v3, plus two goalkeepers.

Game play

Players should know which way they are shooting.
The only instruction is to shoot at the goal.
Praise shooting whether the ball goes in the goal or not.

Laws of soccer

In any game…
The ball must be fully across the goal line to count as a goal.
