GOALIE WARS

Register to participate by clicking on the registration button above.

Goalie Wars is an exciting game where two soccer players face off against each other in a timed event on a field approximately 30 yard long by 20 yard wide and divided in half by a midfield line. A full size goal sits at both ends of the field. Each "goalkeeper" plays in one half of the field, defending their goal, while trying to score on the goal of the opposing goalkeeper. Attempts on goal may come from a punt, throw, roll, dropkick, or shot from the ground. Just like in a normal game of soccer.
