Varied heights of shot stopping

Published on 30th April 2016 by

This is a easy to do drill which you can be done with either one or two keepers. Doing it with two keepers will allow each keeper to get a proper rest in between each shot so it will be a more productive drill.

The basic drill
1) You need to set up a cone for the keepers on each side of the goal. You want a maximum of 2 metres distance from the post to the cone
2) The server, who should be placed just outside the 18 yard box should take a shot of the ball towards the goal shouting when the keeper whose turn it is to move
3) Once the save is made it is then for the next keeper to take his turn

What is it helping?
Having to firstly run the short distance to the goal will increase a keepers speed. Saving the shot will develop your handling and hopefully you will get a variation of shots from the server

Make the drill harder
– The person taking the shot has the capability to make the drill as hard or easy as they want by giving the keepers a shorter amount of time to reach the goal or by increasing the power of the shot.
