Organisation

2 yard goal made of 2 cones, with a spot centrally behind. Spot will also be 2 yards behind and set-up will form the shape of a triangle. Players will work in pairs; 1 working GK and 1 server.

Server will serve underarm for the duration of the exercise, as it allows more control on the service; which allows the GK to benefit.

6 repetitons and then swap.

1 - Underarm roll along the floor

2 - Underarm throw at an elbow-high area (medium dive)

Progressions - Footwork - figure of 8 around the 2 cones (implement the stepping in to the dive - attacking the ball).

Key Factors

Set Position – Balanced on balls of feet, knees slightly bent, feet shoulder width apart, elbows tucked in, head still.

Decision Making – Catch/Deflect/Parry – projectory of ball determines handling/low or med dive.

Low/Med dive – Step out to the ball with appropriate leg, bend knee and go over your knee (controlled) – Attack the ball, W hand shape – ‘Stop & Lock’ (hand on the outside stops, the other locks it & secures the ball). Med dive especially – Catch the ball first before you complete the dive. Hands finish in front of feet.

Footwork – short, sharp steps to get in to line of the ball. Move around in Set Position and on balls of feet.

Organisation

GKs will be paired up; 2 GKs will work in the goal with two servers either side of the goal with a supply of footballs (4 each). 4 Servers (A1, A2.. B1, B2) will then be positioned around 10-12 yards away, in line with each goal post in 2 lines.

Server 1 will play the ball to Server A1, who will take a touch and will strike the ball at the GK (A). GK must position himself in relation to the ball and react. GK (A) will then retreat to the goal line in order for Server 2 to pass the ball in to Server B2. GKs swap positions and so do Servers A1 & A2 (with B1 & B2). Each server will have 2 strikes each.

Rotation: GKs – Servers, Servers – Servers B1 & B2, Servers B1 & B2 – Servers A1 & A2, Servers A1 & A2 – GKs.

Progressions – Shoot at GK, Shoot along the floor, Shoot with intent on scoring. Touch either side of GK.
