Drill To Improve Footwork For Shotblocking

By Lawrence Fine, Author of the FineSoccer Coaching Bible.

Welcome to the Goalkeeping Newsletter. Today’s featured activity works on footwork, positioning and shot blocking.

Start with 2 cones set up 4 yards apart 4 yards from goal. A keeper is in goal and 3 servers are inside the 18 with balls.


The center server starts and the keeper steps up through the cones to position himself to make the save


The server then shoots and the keeper makes the save


The ball gets returned to the server and the keeper goes backwards through the cones and then forward to make the save from the next server.


The ball then gets returned and the keeper heads to the third server.


This continues for a 1 minute period.

This is an excellent way to get a keeper accustomed to coming forward to cut off the angle and attack the ball and then resetting further back.

Have a great day!
