Diving Warm Up (10 mins)

For this drill the Coach or other GK will serve the ball to the side of the training GK for a collapsed dive. As soon as the keeper makes the save he/she will toss the boll back to the server and immediately go up for a High ball. Repeat opposite side.

Working area is roughly 20 yards in length.

Coaching Point: Diving, are the dives being completed correctly. Is the Keeper jumping off the right foot, are they putting their knee up for the high saves?

3 Servers, 2 Balls

As simple as the name. The keeper will be set and receive a service from the player and then two touch the ball out to whichever player does not have a ball at their feet. You CANNOT pass back to the person that has shot on the keeper.

After the first ball is played to the open server, the 2nd server will serve his/her ball to the GK.

Coaching Point: Footwork/Distribution. Focus on knowing where the open man is.

3 Servers, Resistance Bands (15 mins)

Using the same set up as the 3 servers, 2 balls, the GK will now put on a resistance band and go into the squat position sliding across the front of the goal. At any time one of the servers can yell "Keep" for the GK to approach them and field a shot. After the save is made the GK will toss the ball back to the server and return to sliding across the goal until the next server yells.

The same server can serve multiple times in a row if desired. Make sure that the GK is set before the shot is fired.

Coaching Point: GK Movement, set and ready position.

Blind Goalie (15 mins)

For this drill the GK is facing away from the Goal or even the server. The free runner is able to go wherever he likes and the server can either throw the ball to the runner or kick it. The runner's job is to simply score while the GK needs to make a quick read on where the ball is going and react accordingly.

Coaching Point: Reaction Time, Diving, Positioning

Back to Goal (15 mins)

This drill is meant to force the Keeper to get back and make a save using their front hand and pushing the ball over.

The drill begins with the GK coming out to server 1, whichever way server 1 turns either to the left or right, the GK will touch the ball and then retreat to that post. The server will attempt to toss the ball upper 90. Following the save, goal, or miss, the Server on the side that Server 1 turned too will fire a shot near post, again the GK job is to try and make the save using the front hand.

Coaching Point: Back Pedal, Turn and Jog, Front Hand use, Back to Goal
