Wes, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

*AUDIO DESCRIPTION ON*

  • Use mini goals. Goalkeeeper starts on a cone behind the mini goal.
  • Server plays a ball for the mini goal and GK blocks with legs

NOTES

  • Do not go down to early but get leg out fast when need arises
  • GK to make themselves as wide as possible
  • Arms spread but slightly in front of the body

COACHING POINTS

  • Goalkeeper do not get to close
  • GK needs to have a little bit of space to react
  • Turn blocking ankle out to make a larger blocking area
  • When working with younger players serves from standing position as young goalkeepers may have fear of getting hit
  • It is important to make clear that if a goalkeeper turns away they will lose the ability to use the hands to protect them.

PROGRESSION

  • Introduce another goal and a second server
  • Servers both go same way
  • GK starts between the two goals now and first server in line can try and score in either goal
