Goalkeeper Low Dives Close to the Body

Create goalkeepers with the confidence to save low shots, close to the body and to think of the next save with this technical session.

Preview Plan



  • Volley into hands making goalkeeper dive catching ball
  • Followed by low shot into corner


  • Try and get up to feet if you can
  • If not go into low dive from crouch
  • Do not turn back to get up

Coaching points

  • It is important that the shot comes from the direction the goalkeeper would parry to make it realistic eg initial dive to GK's right side second shot should come in from that area


  • Player passes the ball rather than takes initial shot to change the angle then receives a shot from there
  • Increase the number of sets for the goalkeeper
