Make an L shape with three poles, giving you two makeshift goals. The goalkeeper moves between the two goals, receiving balls from server eight to 10 yards away.
The goalkeeper receives a pass from server 1 and plays it straight back to him, one touch. Server 1 passes the ball to server 2, while the goalkeeper moves to the other goal to face server 2. The goalkeeper then receives a pass from server 2 and again plays it back one touch, before the cycle starts again. Another cycle involves the goalkeeper receiving a volley from server 1. He catches the ball and throws it back, before moving to the other goal to receive a volley from server 2.
Reps: 8 passes/volleys per goalkeeper (four from each server)
