One player goes in goal, the rest spread out with the designated area. The goalkeeper begins with the ball.
The goalkeeper plays the ball out into the area, and all the other players now become active. They must contest for the ball and attempt to score. Once a goal is scored, the scorer proceeds to the next round. They then sit out at the side of the pitch until all but one player has scored. The player that does not score is eliminated. Everyone who had scored then returns in for the next round. Players are continually eliminated until there is an overall winner. Then the game can restart with everyone included again. To make each round, and the game longer, the amount of goals that need to be scored before progressing can be raised to 2 or 3.
The shooting range can also be restricted. For example a player can not score from within the 6 yard area, unless they are following up on a rebound.
Deflected shots that result in a goal are awarded to original shooter and not the individual it deflected off.
A great fun soccer drill for players of any age.
