Soccer Drill Demonstration


  • GK starts on knees with server 3 yards away.
  • Set up cones slightly wider than where the GK can reach with a dive.
  • Server plays the ball above head of the GK and out to either side.
  • GK has to use their top hand to tip the ball over or wide.

Coaching points

  • Lead with opposite hand.
  • GK hands in classic set position and not too low to start with to make it easier to bring the opposite hand over the top.
  • Top of the arm should not be blocking the GKs view of the ball.
  • Open the hand and try to make a large surface area by spreading the fingers.
