3v3 Small-Sided Game To Train Goalkeepers

Welcome to the Goalkeeping Newsletter.  Today’s featured activity is a game working on positioning, communication, shot blocking , distribution and much more.

Start with a 40 x 30 field with full sized goals and a mid field line.  There is a keeper in each goal and 2 attacking players and 1 defending player in each half.

One keeper starts with the ball.  He can play to either his teammate in the back half or either attacking player in the far half


Players in the attacking half of the field are limited to 2 touches.  This means they will need to either get a quick shot hit or a quick pass.

As soon as the ball goes out of play, the opposing keeper picks up a ball and does the same thing in the opposite direction.

This is an extremely quick moving game with a lot of shots, quick transition and constant movement.  It’s a great way for the keeper (and field players) to work on many aspects of the game while having fun playing the game

Have a great day!
