More goal keeping programmes for small goalie

Hi I am a assistant coach for our under 12yr old team and wondered if anyone can help me with coaching tips for our goal keeper.

I have covered all of the ones on the web page but need coaching tips for jumping techniques as our goalie is quite short and needs to gain balance

Many thanks

Hi Andy,

if height is the issue with your goalkeeper I would try some high ball drills to work on their jumping ability.

Get your keeper to stand a couple of meters off the goal line and throw some underhand throws - at first just requiring your keeper to jump and catch the ball on the spot but then start throwing higher and deeper, in an attempt to lob them.

This means your keeper will need to back pedal, jump and catch the ball (working on their balance, speed and co-ordination).
