Screen 1

3 General Positions:

Position 1- tight crosses; often medium height or low crosses across the face of goal

  tactical notes- often seen with younger (07, 08) level players; less reaction time (decision to go or stay)

Position 2- standard cross 

  tactical notes- overhead catching; knee drive, catching highest point 

Position 3- high through-balls (balls overtop back line) 

  tactical notes- emphasis on starting position, decisions to go or stay, still meet overhead catching standards

Manipulations:

1. throw/toss or half volley vs kick from floor

2. goalkeepers starting position in goal (effecting prorioception and positional awareness)

3. distractions (example: players in the box) 

Considerations:

1. What happens prior to a cross arriving in a game?

2. What is a GK's movement before the cross is initiated?

3. What are action sequences seen in a game?

  a. cross to a recovery save or a save and an immediate cross from wide?

  b. what happens if a GK drops a ball or is stuck out of position? How can we train that? 

  c. what happens next after a GK makes a catch? How can you work that in?

Screen 4

Combination handling/diving to high ball

**exception to the game sequence rule: we can work on more skills at once by combining them.  We also get to work on speed/agility and ability to recover (standing up fast) by going from a dive to a cross.
