Small games at the beginning of a training are always nice. This time we want to introduce the “parallel goal game”. One the one hand, focuses on concentration, adaption and a quick change of views for floorball goalies and on the other hand on counterattacks and one on one defence game play for field players.
How to do it?
You need only one half of the field
Both goals are on the same height and have the same distance between the board and midline of the half field
You are playing 3 vs 3
Field players can score on both goals as soon as they did one pass
Floorball goalie has only one thing in mind “You have no friend on the field”. Defend the goal as good as possible. Once you caught the ball, do a throw out to one of the field players who is close to the other goal but be careful, he could also shot on your goal again
We play this game from time to time in our training and it makes a lot of fun. You can adapt the game by increasing the passes before it is allowed to shot or add an additional player.
From the point of view of a floorball goalie, this game is very intensive. Each field player is a potential shooter and you do not have time to recover your concentration. Once you catch a ball, you can start a counter attack immediately with a hard throw out the slot of the other goal. Try it out and give us your feedback. We are looking forward to hear from you.
