HIT THE TARGET

STRIKING A BALL

THIS IS A SIMPLE BUT FUN EXERCISE USED TO DEVELOP GOOD CONTACT WITH THE BALL, OBJECTIVE IS TO HELP DEVELOP KICKS OF THE GROUND.

THE AIM IS TO IMPROVE LIFTING THE BALL OFF THE GROUND, AS SOME GK STRUGGLE WITH THIS.

THIS IS A BLOCKED EXERCISE, POSITION THE BALL, STRIKE THE BALL TO A TARGET.

USE PLASTIC HOOPS AND HANF THEM OFF THE CROSS BAR, CENTRE, AND BOTH CORNERS.

EACH GK CAN POSITION THE BALL ALONG THE 18 YARD BOX, AND TAKE TURNS TO AIM FOR THE HOOPS, THROUGH THE HOOPS.

POINTS FOR THROUGH THE HOOPS, CLOSE TO THE HOOP ETC.

ADD THE FUN OF JOINING IN THE SESSION.

THE LEARNING CURVE, IS THE STRIKING OF THE BALL

PLANTING THE FOOT TO AIM

HEAD DOWN, FOLLOW THROUGH.

THE GK WILL LEARN AND VISUALISE THE HOOPS AS A TARGET... WE THEN PROGRESS THIS.

GAME SITUATION

NOW MOVE GK INTO A SITAUATION AS IF A GAME IS TAKING PLACE, A DEAD BALL SITUATION, TALK TO THEM ABOUT VISUALISATION OF THE HOOPS, SAME TECHNIGUE, SAME PRINCIPAL, THIS TIME THEY ARE AIMING FOR A PLAYER OR A SPECIFIC AREA.

THE SESSION CAN BE ALTERED TO WORK ON OVER ARM THROWS, CAN THEY DISTRIBUTE THE BALL THROUGH THE HOOP FROM VARIOUS PARTS OF THE BOX.

BYUSING THE HOOP FACILITY YOU ADD FUN AND COMPETITION, KEEP A SCORE, AND USE IT AS A WARM UP EACH WEEK TO SEE HOW THE GK ARE PROGRESSING.
