<<CONFIRM - Blue>>

1)    1 minute Shooter / Keeper 1v1

2)    The corner kicker:

A player takes 10 corner kicks in 2 min,  ball must be touhing the goal

line, and attempt to score.   A goal is by standard definition, must

completely cross the goal line.     Top score at the end of the day will

win a prize

 3)   The longest kicker.

Using the touch line, a player has 3 kicks of the ball as far as he can

down the line on the fly in 2min.. where the ball lands it will be measured

in respect to the Touch line.   The amount of error to the touchline is

subtracted from the total.  The sum of all 3 kicks is the score total.

The winner of the day gets a prize.

11:15am:  U19G vs. U14B-1 -- I'd say again a 35-minute "half"/"game", subs at their discretion (maybe the girls can change on the fly but the boys only at half)
  • ZONE #5- UK clinics by age group; Shots on Goal & Radar Gun ALL AGES
