Description

This GK session works on agility, diving, and distribution.  A coach could have GK  working together on the warm ups, and the first two drills if there are enough players.  Otherwise, involve as many players needed so that all players are busy.  Make sure that the field players are making quick switches and taking quick shots during scrimmage games, since it is a goal keeping session.

4 v 4 from 2 sides of the goal (15 mins)

Players play 4 v 4 and they can score on either side of the goal. Emphasize quick passing, shots, and switching since it is a GK drill. Make sure players are switching the ball so that the GK has to pivot and get set for a new shot from a new angle.
