A fun drill for goalies after practice is the rebound game. Three players play against the goalie while a goal and save are each worth one point. Players shoot from the slot and if they score the players get a point, if the goalie makes a save and clears the rebound then he/she gets a point. If the goalie saves it, but the forwards grab the rebound and score, then again they get a point. Games are normally played to ten and when the forward who shoots does not score and the goalie clears the rebound, another forward takes over and so on.... This drill works on the forwards' shots and forces goalies to clear their rebounds.
