Improving Footwork and Positioning

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

Start with a couple field players near the top corner of the 18 with balls and a keeper in goal.

The first player starts dribbling across the top of the 18

At any time the player can stop and hit a quick shot

As soon as the first player shoots the keep makes the save, returns the ball and then sprints to the near post for the next player to start.

In watching the keepers movement watch to make sure they are moving in somewhat of an arcing manner as opposed to straight across the goal and also watch to see that they aren’t crossing their legs while shuffling.

Make sure to do this activity from both sides.

Have a great day!
