Soccer: Circle Throws

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

DESCRIPTION

The keeper works their way around the circle and must react to three different types of feed which they must try to catch/stop and then return the feeder.

The first feed is a simple chest-height catch.

After this first stop the keeper then jogs around two cones before sharply changing direction and diving low to catch the second feed.

After this the keeper quickly gets back to their feet and jogs around the next cone before then diving to catch the third feed.

COACHING POINTS

Feeders should aim their ball towards the cone - they're not trying the catch the keeper out although they shouldn't be deliberately making this drill easy for them either.

Before the second feed the keeper should touch the cone before changing direction to meet the ball.

The drill will help improve goalkeeper's agility, and ensure that the keeper is comfortable diving to either side.
