Hockey: Diving technique

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

DESCRIPTION

The goalkeeper starts 2 / 3 metres off their line on their knees. The coach then throws the ball under arm for the goalkeeper to dive across and make a save with their hand/stick.

COACHING POINTS

Make sure that the goalkeeper's hips are the first part of the body to touch the pitch.

Ensure that the hand / stick are close together. Make sure that the goalkeeper's 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.
