More you can do with this activity

You don't have to move a cone to get more out of this activity. 

Below are a few ideas:


-Require the players to do a dribbling move before going through the moving goal (scissors, step-over etc.)

-Divide the team in half and have each group compete against the other for the most total gates dribble through in 1 minute.

-Allow players to knock other players balls from them while trying to go through the goal.

Description


Two coaches use a practice vest or shirt and hold it between them to form a goal.  Coaches move around the field and the players dribble their soccer ball trying to dribble through the moving goal. Coaches move to open areas of the field so players have to look up to find where the goal is located.
