Welcome to the Goalkeeping Newsletter. Today’s featured activity works on receiving crosses, footwork and distribution.
Start with two keepers in goal and a server wide on each side with a ball.
Once the keeper catches the ball, he quickly sets himself and distributes the ball back to the server. The intention is for the ball to get back to the server in a way that makes it as easy as possible for the server to receive the ball with their feet.
Next you can add an opponent in for each side to add opposition.
The one concern with this activity is to not have the keepers do too much throwing of the ball. Have them do 10 or so, at the most to each side and after that, let them roll the ball or kick the ball to the server.
Have a great day!
