Footwork

Organization:

Cones set up as shown about 1-3 yards apart

Instructions:

Part 1:

Keepers stand a few feet from the first cone, facing perpendicular to the row, take a small step towards the cone, then push hard with the near leg, drive the opposite knee up and get as much height over the cone as possible. Repeat down the row of cones a few times, then start at the other end and go the opposite direction

Part 2:

Keepers start to the side and slightly behind the first cone, shuffle and power step over the first cone and try to get enough distance to clear the second cone. Then they back up, and power step over the second cone trying to clear the third cone (now going to the opposite side), etc. Go through the cones several times. The distance between cones should challenge the keepers.

Coaching Points:

-Goalkeepers must have a good step and explosive drive if they want to get height and distance. -The step should be low, with the knee bent to provide the power. The opposite knee should drive up to provide height. The shoulders and hips should stay "square to the field" -- that is, face forward, perpendicular to the direction of the jump.

-Don't let them turn forward and face the direction they are jumping

Diving

Setup:

Keepers pair up, with one keeper only the ball

Instructions:

Part 1 1 keeper in the pair holds the ball, while the other keeper is on 1 knee. The Server with ball will hold the ball out at the keeper on the grounds head height. Keeper on knee will dive to get the ball out of the servers hand and land properly. The "up" knee will the be the knee in which the direction of the dive will take place. Repeat to the other side.

Part 2 Same as above except players are now in a low squat position

Part 3 Normal ready position diving

Coaching Points:

-Focus needs to be on driving to the ball and catching cleanly, keepers should look to dive through the ball

-Mentality of diving to get to ball

-When landing, landing on the hip and shoulder. We will achieve this by getting body up to the level of the ball.

Progressions:

-Move to where the server instead of holding in hand for the keeper to grab, will now toss.
