Football: Footwork Step and Dive

The 'My Stuff' feature is amazing! It's a coach's best friend!
Thomas

DESCRIPTION

*AUDIO DESCRIPTION ON*

  • Set up 1 hurdle with 2 cones either side to indicate where the step is to be taken, then a wider cone to indicate the goal
  • Goalkeeper jumps over the hurdle and into set position
  • Takes one small step with nearest foot then goes into dive

COACHING POINTS

  • Does the goalkeeper land in a good set position initially?
  • Goalkeeper must take that extra step
  • Work on isolating the technique. If the ball is very wide observe where the goalkeeper leaves their feet and do they push off

PROGRESSION

  • Vary the service and also make the goal bigger so the goalkeeper has to get the extra step into dive
  • Once technique looks good start making the service random eg to either side
  • Put the drill into a full sized goal
