DESCRIPTION

*AUDIO DESCRIPTION ON*

  • Pair goalkeepers up with server
  • GK on knees, Server plays ball out to side of GK
  • GK sticks leg out to block with feet

NOTES:

  • Arms in standard set position to start then spread as the shot is about to be taken
  • Weight and head forward and try and stay upright rather than leaning to one side
  • Leg nearest the ball unfolds and stretches to make save
  • Try and get leg as low as possible the hamstring as close to the playing surface

COACHING POINTS

  • Make sure the goalkeeper is looking at the ball
  • Goalkeepers need to be aware that if they are looking at the ball they can use their hands to protect the face from ball or player coming in
  • Is the goalkeeper as 'long' as they can possibly get
  • The leg should be at 180' from opposite hand and not trailing or in front of body

PROGRESSION

  • Change angle of approach
  • Goalkeeper to jump out of kneeling position before making the save.
