OWNING ANGLES - Winning Goalkeeping Skills for Ages 14+. Former Division 1 goalkeeper and experienced soccer goalkeeping coach Brian Galvin demonstrates how goalies can practice saving shots from angles in this goalkeeper training video. Goalies should stay balanced, their shoulders square to the shooter and their body positioned in the center of the goal. The shooter should not see more space on one side than the other. After the drill, ... goalkeepers should talk to the shooters and ask if one side looked more open than the other, and overall how the shooter felt the keeper's positioning was. By taking this feedback and incorporating it into the next repetition of the drill, goalies will quickly improve their positioning and readiness to save shots at angles. This drill is very important for keepers as they face this situation very often in games. The large majority of shots will come at some kind of an angle and being prepared and rehearsed in positioning will make a keeper much more effective in this scenario.
