Football Drill Demonstration


  • Set up a square of cones in front of the goal.
  • Goalkeeper makes distinctive movements around the square towards any of the four cones with changes of direction.
  • Server then plays a shot at random intervals.

Coaching points

  • Goalkeeper should always try and get back to a position in the square- depending on the server's position.
  • Short, sharp movements of the feet, not big steps so GK is balanced and has a platform to push off if the shot comes in early. 
  • GK always has head up.


  • Progress into making the Goalkeeper dive.
  • Server can play the ball at any time during the movement of the Goalkeeper.
