Dealing With Crosses, Then Quick Distribution

Welcome to the Goalkeeping Newsletter.  Today's featured activity works on dealing with crosses and then quick distribution.

The reason for today’s activity is to reinforce to the keeper that making a save or catching a cross is just the start of the play and NOT the end of the play.

Start with a server out wide on each side, a keeper in goal and 5 gates spread around the half of the field.

One server plays a ball in as a cross and the keeper comes out and catches the ball.

The opposite server than calls a number 1-5 and the keeper then throws (or rolls) the ball through the appropriate gate.

As soon as the ball is distributed the keeper resets and then takes a serve from the other side.

Really emphasize to the keeper the importance of distributing quickly and accurately

Have a great day!
