Recovering Back to Goal to Make a Save

Welcome to the Goalkeeping Newsletter. Todays featured activity works on recovering back to goal to make a save.

Most of the time keepers work on shot blocking with the assumption they are starting in a proper position. The reality is keepers occasionally do get caught out of position and this activity works on that situation.

Start with a keeper in goal, a server at the 12 yard spot and a few balls at the far corners of the 6 yard box.


The keeper sprints out to one of the balls and passes it back to the server


The keeper has to then recover quickly to goal because the server is going to play a first touch ball toward goal.




The keeper then gets up, sprints to the other set of balls and does the same thing.

This activity is done 3 times to each side and then another keeper rotates in.

Have a great day!
