Player 1 stands parrallel to by-line with goalkeeper facing, player 2 stands on angle outside far post

Keeper makes save at front post, spins round (teach power step) to move into line (up line) for 2nd service.

Serve can be kicked, volleyed or thrown depending on quality of service!

To find angle, get keepers to imagine a line from centre of goal to ball, they need to set with imaginary line passing through the centre of their body whilst setting into and up the line.

Move around in direct line to ball, maintaining control, keeping hands set, feeet not too close or too far apart, upper body square to ball and head facing ball
