Goalkeeper Footwork

The modern goalkeeper has to be good with their feet. Improve your keepers footwork by building their confidence to take the ball to feet with this session.

Preview Plan


  • Set up a square of cones in front of the goal.
  • Goalkeeper makes distinctive movements around the square towards any of the four cones with changes of direction.
  • Server then plays a shot at random intervals.

Coaching points

  • Goalkeeper should always try and get back to a position in the square- depending on the server's position.
  • Short, sharp movements of the feet, not big steps so GK is balanced and has a platform to push off if the shot comes in early. 
  • GK always has head up.


  • Progress into making the Goalkeeper dive.
  • Server can play the ball at any time during the movement of the Goalkeeper.
