Warm Up (10 mins)

WARM UP- Goalkeepers shall begin the session by lining up on the end line and perfom low intensity runs to the top of the penalty ara and back. Goalkeepers shall then perform dynamic stretches again from the end line to the top of the penalty area focusing more on hamstring flexibility progressively increasing intensity. Next, starting at a modertate distance, goalkeepers perform both goal kicks and punts and shall progressively increase the distance to a realistic point of distribution. Goalkeepers are encouraged to perform dynamic stretches whenever they feel necessary throughout this phase of the warm up.

Goal Kicks (10 mins)

GOAL KICKS- Goalkeepers shall execute a goal kick with the objective of striking the ball into a 20 x 20 area 35 yards upfield. The goalkeeper may also make an effort to drive the ball further and with increased accuracy by attempting a strike into the mini-goal placed beyond each 20 x 20 area. Goalkeepers awaiting their turn may be placed adjacent to 20 x 20 areas and mini-goals to retrieve balls. Distribution back must be technically sound. Those retreived balls are distributed to an awaiting goalkeeper off to the side of the 'keeper taking their strikes.

Punts (10 mins)

PUNTS- Coach shall strike a user friendly ball at the goalkeper who, after save shall bring the ball to the top of the penalty area where the ball is struck downfield. Goalkeepers wil be encouraged to strike the ball from the center, right, and left areas of the penalty area toward a 20 x 20 area or beyond as noted by cones. Punts to be coached are- standard strike, drop kick, and sidewinder strike. Goalkeepers waiting their turn can be dispearsed adjacent to areas of note and will be expected in a techncally sound manner distribute the ball back to an awaiting goalkeeper. Coach may challenge the distributing goalkeeper by striking a shot requiring a collapse dive and hitting a ball on the ground, closing the goalkeeper simulating a breakway scenario. These are real scenarios for the goalkeeper prior to punts downfield.

Distribution Game (20 mins)

DISTRIBUTION GAME- Goalkeepers move the ball about by executing punts. Once successfully received in the air, that goalkeeper my choose to continue to punt it upfield or is allowed to put the ball down and, simulating a goal kick, strike it on goal. Score, then the team that was scored upon restarts the game with either a goal kick or punt. Any ball that was struke and not retrieved in the air is considered a turnover. In the example above, GK A punted to GK B who retrieved it in the air, punts to GK C who also successfuly gathers it in the air and then striks a "goal kick" to score. Have fun!
