1v1 Activity - Block/Spread w/ Angled Service

Objective - Build understanding of when and how to close space in 1v1 situations

  • 1) GK takes angled service
  • 2) GK moves forward through poles to face mid range 1v1
Coaching Points
  • Set position - get LOW (this is so important, they stay WAAYYY too upright in 1v1s), hands lower and wider
  • Closing space - gradual and small steps if attacker is in control with head up, accelarate to gain space if they take poor touch or look down
  • Make sure weight stays forward, they remain balanced, and they drop/extend the correct (inside) leg
  • Call keeper if smothering
