Divide the team in half. Goalies are in goals in the middle the field by the sidelines. Each team needs to pick a player to take the draw each round. Players line up like a game draw control. Whichever team gets possession of the ball on the draw must work to pass or shoot on the goalie immediately before being swarmed by defenders.
