FOOTWORK & DIVING - WINNING GOALKEEPING SKILLS 3 • AGES 10-13
FOOTWORK AND DIVING – Winning Goalkeeping Skills 3 for Ages 10-13. Former Division 1 Goalkeeper, Brian Galvin, teaches a drill for young goalies simulating a ... match situation focusing on footwork and diving technique. Set up four disc cones in the box, two on either side in a v-shaped pointing towards the six yard line. Place two cones one on either side of the six yard line to guide the shooter to place the ball towards the corner of the goal. Start the goalie on one side of the V and have them use their footwork on their toes to move forward into a ready stance close to the edge of six yard box. Place a shot to either side, keeping the goalie guessing and insuring they maintain a neutral stance in that ready position. From there they should take a step forward at a positive angle, load their weight onto the outside leg and drive their hands across to the ball, making the save. Insure that they maintain correct hand positioning and body shape. Complete three sets of 8 on either side each day.
