In this fun passing drill for kids, players will practice passing the ball through gates to their team mate to score points. After playing one time, this drill becomes more fun with the introduction of ‘gate defenders’ and ‘goalkeepers’ who try and block the players successfully passing the ball through the gate.
If the opposing team gains possession it can then attempt to score a point by passing through a gate. Change defenders every three minutes. The winners are the group of eight players who score the most points.
