Diving Progression (20 mins)

Set-up

Goalkeepers stand in 4-6 yard goals depending on age with goals approx 8-12 yards apart

Goalkeepers take it in turns to strike ball along the floor either close (collapsing dive) towards corner (low diving) or throw ball 2 handed high (mid height). Work 6 low/close either side, 6 low/ far and 6 mid height either side. All serves should be achievable for goalkeeper at this stage to build confidence in the technique.

Progress to more testing deliveries and look at the parry or defelction (put in parry/deflection safe and danger zones) also encourage players to follow up rebounds (1st time strike) if goalkeeper parries into danger zone

Push wide and far using the heel of the hand (parry) or fingers (defelction) to keep ball safe. Anything dropping in or around the 6 yard line causes immediate danger to the goal.

Diving - Footwork (20 mins)

Set-up

6-8 yard goal, server either side approx 8-10 yards away

Mixing up service for collapse, low diving and mid height 2 goalkeepers work moving out to their right after each save. Start to focus more on footwork and implemeting the 'power step' to cover the ground quicker to make a save.

Power step- big sweeping step from back foot (foot furthest away from the ball) across the front of the front foot, keeping head, chest, hips facing the ball and only rotating legs. Using the step after the power step to set up the dive (diagonal step so foot is pointing out and towards the ball)

Diving - Footwork (20 mins)

Set-up

4-6 yard goal

1 goalkeeper (rotational)

5 servers

1st server takes a touch out of feet and moves in line with wide gate and strikes ball 1st time to front post (varied heights)

Look at goalkeepers start position (in line-up line) and reaction to the ball being moved from a central area to wide for a strike. Steps should be short and sharp keeping feet as close to ground as possible. Monitor whether goalkeeper assumes correct position to narrow the angle of the shot.

Assess decision making, did they make the right save, did they catch or parry/ deflect into a safe area, check body shape (diving out and towards the ball) and also that the goalkeeper doesn't land on top of knee or elbow.
