Hockey: Diving technique - Standing

Excellent, used the drills at our first training session today with...
Shane, Hockey Coach

DESCRIPTION

The standing progression, is the next stage on from the haunches position. The goalkeeper stands in a stationary position, and the coach then throws the ball under arm. The goalkeeper then dives across the goal to save the ball. Ensure that the correct techniques are used.

COACHING POINTS

  • Make sure that the GKs hips are the first part of the body to touch the pitch.
  • Ensure that the hand / stick are close together.
  • Make sure that the GKs vision is not impaired by placing hands / stick in front of eyes.
  • When landing try to land on your elbow and stay balanced on it to allow for secondary saves.
  • Kick legs out so they are stacked one on top of the other to make a big barrier.
