This exercise works on attacking heading and youth players will love it. It also might help you identify who your back up goalkeeper will be. You will need two coaching sticks or corner flags to make a goal. Half of your players are on one side facing the goal and the other half are behind the goal facing the back of the goalkeeper (the goal is two sided). The coach is located to the side of the goal and alternates tossing a header for each side. The players may not pass the cone in front of their line until the ball is tossed (or they will cheat and be too close). The players head the ball and then become the goalkeeper to stop the other line from heading through the goal. The players keep track of their teams score. To score, the ball must go below the height of the bar. This will help emphasize attacking heading and heading downward.
