An U10 goalkeeper game to help develop their key skills
A fun game for goalkeepers to help them challenge one another, and develop their key skills.
- Set up a 10 x 10 yards area with a portable goal at each end. Put a goalkeeper in each goal and give each keeper four or five balls.
- The goalkeepers take turns to kick towards the opposite goal and try to score.
- The goalkeepers can move forward and around the area to retrieve any wayward balls. If they gather one close to the goal they can try and throw it into their opponent’s net.
- You can encourage the goalkeepers to strike the ball more aggressively during this game, which not only gives them good shot stopping practice but also helps with goalkicking technique.
