** We can alter this to include hurdle skips, plyometrics, and other explosive exercises that emphasis driving up on one leg to get the ball.  This is just an example**


Organization:

  • Set a medium size ladder perpendicular with the center of the goal
  • Set a small hurdle each side of the ladder
  • Set 4 cones on top of the 18 to create 2 small goals
  • Set two bigger hurdle each side of the ladder slightly off the posts of the big goal

Instructions:

  • The working goalie will perform a double step low skip over the ladder, jumping in-out in correspondence of the small hurdles, holding a one foot stance for a couple of seconds before jumping back on the ladder
  • At the end of the ladder the coach will serve a ball that the gk has to approach coming forward
  • The GK who saved the ball then attempts to beat GK 2 1v1 and score in the mini goal. 
  • GK 2 attempts to save, then returns ball and single leg hops over hurdles 
  • Next rep, go to GK 3, same activity flow

Coaching Points:

GKs should be driving up with arms and one knee up to protect themselves when claiming a high ball

Proper Contour catch technique and arms fully extended (catch ball at highest point)

Moving forward to claim the cross/air ball

Low, big hands when defending 1v1

Use K technique to protect meg

Jockey, let attacker make the first move, force them wide and away from the goal

Pick the moment to get the ball (after attacker takes a touch)


    Progressions:

    Vary the service: low scooping-frontal smother, medium height scooping-low dive, over hand catch-bounce ball, volley catch-collapse dive, high catch-high catch

    Crosses (45 mins)

    Organization:

    • Set two goal one in front of the other, 18 yards apart
    • One goalie each goal
    • Set dummies between the two goals
    • At least two servers each side of the box
    • Extra players attack crosses
    • All balls with GKs in goals
    • Use the other goalies to serve the ball

    Instructions:

    • Balls start with a throw or roll out from the GK
    • Server has three touches to serve a cross into the space between the two goals. 
    • Defending GK makes a save, attacking GK tries to finish the cross for 1 point
    • The defending GK has to catch the ball and return them to the kickers changing every time the type of service: rolling, over shoulder throw, side volley, passing to then attack the other goal with a cross

    Coaching Points:

    • Position - Can you get the ball or not? If so, go claim.  If not, drop back to line to have as much time as possible
    • Timing of movement - don't go early, read the ball flight
    • Distribution - Proper throwing technique - make it easy for the outside player receiving the ball
    • Communication: KEEPER if getting the ball, AWAY if not getting the ball

    Progressions:

    • GKs can also punch the ball into the oppo net for 1 point
    • Add attacking players to finish crosses
    • Add cut back crosses, must finish 1v1 (attackers have to score inside shaded zone)
    • Create teams, 3v3 central +2 (or more) on outside as servers who can't be pressured.  1 point for goal from central area, 3 points for finishing a chance from a cross
