Game replicated saves

Published on 30th April 2016 by

This drill is a basic one touch and finish from the attacker as they try to score against the keeper. As regular shots from the attackers can be quite tiring and unproductive it is best to do the drill with 2 or 3 keepers who take it in turns to go in goal. The competitiveness between the two teams will mean that you get a higher standard of shots as the attackers try to out score each other.

The basic drill
1) Set up two teams (yellow and red) who each receive the ball from the server at different speeds and heights thus to allow a variation of shots
2) The goalkeeper is then tasked with solely stopping the shot
3) The drill is then repeated as the two teams alternate to try and score

What is it helping?
This drill will improve your feet (through the movement to make the save), handling and reflexes.

Make the drill harder
– To make the drill competitive make it so that a new keeper only goes in net when a goal is scored however you can allow the first goal to be free.
