How much time do you spend working with your shot-stoppers - improving their technique between the sticks? If truth be told, probably not enough, that's why this week we work specifically on your keeper's footwork.
Sometimes, to try and kill two birds with one stone, keeping practice often consists of shooting practice. The problem with this though is it doesn't help your goalies to grow in confidence - they've got very little chance of saving many of these shots!
What's in the session?
To help improve your keeper's positioning this week we focus on your last man in defence. By concentrating on your keeper's footwork you can reduce the amount of work your keeper needs to do in order to get their body behind the ball - better positioning in goal also means they won't need to dive so much!
Develop your defenders understanding of how to channel the attackers away from danger areas to slow down attacks and isolate the opposition players.
Teach all your players how to stand up and resist the temptation to dive in. Instead jockey players and wait for the right moment to make the interception!
Drum in the defensive roles and responsibilities of your players and make sure they understand what you want from them in order to win the ball back and turn defence into attack.
Develop your players understanding of space and how their movement (or even lack of at times) can create space to play in the midfield.
Create a resolution to develop your coaching confidence by seizing the opportunity to discover new drills, turn ideas into action and seek advice from the coaching community.
