Coaching Points

  • Chest facing towards the ball at all times to help
  • Light on feet to get around 
  • Step towards the line of the ball with nearest foot. 
  • Securing the ball on impact as the body hits the floor
  • If ball can't be held deflect the ball into safe area (out of play or to sides of the goal NOT in back forward)
  • Recovery saves to gather the ball 
  • Recovery Lines to defend the goal.
Progression
  • Roll the ball out to server and get round the mannequin and then make the save.
  • The mannequin will be placed in forward to serves to recreate keeper 'seeing it late' or a deflection off a player so keeper needs react to the flight of the ball.
