Iâm looking for a drill for my gk to help defend a holding gs. Iâve encouraged the gk to keep moving around the gs to limit passing options into the gs but need a drill
The advice you have given your GK regarding moving around the shooter is perfect! This will prevent the shooter from being able to set up a strong hold and will also deter the centre court from passing in.
I have attached below the correct technique to deal with a holding shooter, found in our fundamentals section, however it seems you have this nailed already.
Below are a few drills that may help you:
- 1-v-2 Guarding Ball Side
- 1-vs-1 Defending in the Circle
- Front Marking with Ball
These are only a few drills that you can use, however the most important aspects for your GK to remember is just to keep their foot base narrow so they can move around the shooter quickly. Also, ensure the GK does not cause contact but set up early as they see the ball coming through court.
Hope this helps.
