I can't get enough of Sportplan. It's given me back the enthusiasm...

DESCRIPTION

  • One goalkeeper working two lines of attackers outside the area and about the width of the 6yd box apart.
  • One line of attacker has the balls and plays the ball into the attacker at the other side.
  • Attacker receiving the ball attempts to take the ball round the goalkeeper.
  • The first server then joins Server 2 line
  • Server 2 who has just run through on goal joins Server 1 line.
  • Depending on group size have two Goalkeepers taking it in turns

COACHING POINTS

  • Decision to dive at feet or smother a loose touch.
  • Same technique as low dive if ball is outside of the attacker
  • Delay and have bodyweight forward
  • As attacker approaches get hands down low but hands should be forward of the knees.
  • Teach goalkeeper to protect themselves with the ball and forearm high also bend top knee up to protect the body whilst in dive. This is called the finishing position.
  • Only advance when ball is out of feet and not as the ball is travelling
  • GK needs to make long barrier
  • Stay big as long as possible and get weight evenly distributed.
  • Do not turn heard keep head looking forward
  • Do not anticipate the shot

PROGRESSION

Goalkeepers can pair up and work with a defender. Then Server 1 becomes the defender- keep a tally of shut outs.
