Coaching points

  • GK touches cone with nearest hand, but leaves furthest hand in position.
  • GK then brings the other hand back into the correct position allowing them to prepare the hands earlier.
  • Hands should be out in front of the body with weight slightly forward.
  • Should aim to get back in the set position as quickly as possible.


  • After every touch and catch the GK receives a shot from the side into dive. Therefore working on basic catching technique from a standing position and also the technique when diving.
