NOVA GK Triangle (15 mins)

Organization of Session

3 GK per groups set up in triangle

Starting cone is where serving GK strikes ball from with flag/stick goals 4yd wide as goal (as much as we can use goal they must defend)

Place xtra balls beside goals so they can keep warm-up going

Key Points

1 - Blue GK serves to Yellow GK

2 - Yellow GK catches, secures, turns and

2a - Red GK steps off mark on angle as Yellow GK is turning, get set

3 - serves to Red

(repeat with rotation of colors/servers/workers for 1 minute counter clockwise, then switch directions for second round)

Sequence (after each round rotate direction -1 min rounds):

Service with "bowl" roll to opposing GK - Stretch

Service with pass from feet on ground - Stretch

Service with laces/driven (shins to waist) - Stretch

Service with volley to chest - Stretch

Service underhand above head height into space for overhead catch - Stretch

Coaching Points

GK step off line on angle, get set, rocking fwrd on toes

Waist and lower - "M" hand positioning behind the ball

Belly button and higher - "W" hand positioning behind the ball

Overhead collect at "their" highest point - "W"

Focus on slowing every action down, deliberately (catch count 1/1000. secure to chest count 1/1000, then distribute/serve = 3 actions

Should discuss angles and cutting angle (show)

Spanish Triangle (15 mins)

Organization of Session

3 Flags, Sticks, Dummies set up in triangle, distance TBD by trainer based on GK range/age

3 servers 10-15 yrds off each target/dummy.

GK working starts on shoulder of dummy the direction they are working

Key Points

1 - Closest shooter (blue in this case) hit ball on floor hard to dummy, forcing reaction save

2 - GK low power dives, and parries ball out of circle with nearest hand, immediately reloads/gets set/attacks next dummy as next shooter hits next ball/target once parry is made

3 - Repeat all action above in 1 for 2, 2 to 3...

Then switch direction, 3rd shooter shooting 1st and so on to the left.

***Each GK goes right then left consectutively, then rotate to server, server becomes worker.

Coaching Points

Do not have to catch everything work - unrealistic in unrealistic situations

Mobility and footwork

Just react and commit, no guessing

Shoot nearest hand to palm "push" the ball wide of target

Immediate recover/ready position
