Please provide variations to ensure motivation,

To add variety, move into the goal, to give the feeling of defending the goal.

keep the basic equipment out, but add the catch of a cross, instead of a low ball, then move into the goal for a shot, the shots can be blocked, to work on a specific side, and develop it from the blocked to random shots., builkd it up and add a cross from outside the area, but keep the basic format of fast movement, agility and speed will be developed.

highlight the number of technical/tactical & physical benefits associated with the practice

This exercise works on the technical side of good positioning for the save, short sharp steps, set and save, it builds up the speed, and good vocal skills from the coach to push the gk faster through, the areas, fun can be added with a fine of sorts if they trip up the ladder miss a cone, add a forefit for younger goalkeepers.

By adding a shot at the end, the GK needs to make decisions on positioning for the incoming shot, again add a fun factor, how many will they score, you will save them all, etc, do the session yourself with the gk taking the shots at the end, a bit of friendly competition.

The physical benefits include working on speed, strong arms/hands. The movement of the feet/legs will aid building up of the legs, and stamina. Each time they make a save at the start they can shout keepers, this also builds up confidence in young keepers.
