Hockey: Short Corner Technique

I really appreciate the Hockey Coaching on Sportplan. The senior girls...

DESCRIPTION

This is the final progression in the diving technique. The goalkeeper starts on their line and runs out 3 / 4 paces before stopping. You then start diving across to save the ball that the coach has thrown with an underarm throw.

This technique can be used to develop the necessary skills for diving at short corners or 1 v 1 skills with attackers.

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.
