U10 & U13 practice #3

If you are in a three team rotation, ensure you have completed practice #2 before moving onto practice #3.  Feel free to try things with goal keeping even spending time teaching proper punting.  Rory and I will be at your practices, either setting up a station, roaming or working with a team, we will tell you upon arrival.

Theme this week:  Goal Keeping

-we will look at the role and positioning of the goal keeper (review this with players)
-using hands and catching properly idea of scooping and locking the box
-rolling the ball, throwing, punting out after save (reminding that rolling is easiest to control

Below a series of one minute videos on the techniques:
Ready position
Bowling technique and scooping and locking the box
Catching Grips
 Punting technique
Over arm throw

Warm up:  GK ball  (10 min)
two teams working on throwing & rolling and the pick up lock box
3 sec with ball, cannot run with ball
either two goals on either end of 20x30 grid or so or make 5 small goals
***look at progression for your age group too

Agility:  focus on side shuffle without crossing feet the first two drills after the game work on agility with goalie skills too if you want to incorporate these please do

Game:  Large grid, one goal made with cones in the middle with goalie (who is neutral) they always roll ball out.  To score must go through the cones and beat goalie.  Change goalie often.
The players can pass anywhere in the grid, attempting to get goalie to move and thus get best shooting angle

Basket catch drill in pairs
Ladder drill - use cones as ladder rungs it progresses right through to diving, use what you like

GK circle game - basic

Triangle Goal Game 
This introduces more movement into the session and we add balls served off the ground. Place three cones or coaching sticks in an equilateral triangle with sides about 6 yards long. 10 yards from each side of the triangle is a server with balls; one keeper is in the triangle. The keeper moves out beyond the cones or sticks to face the first server, who strikes the ball at the keeper. The keeper then quickly moves to the next side of the triangle and saves a shot there, etc. You can do this as a timed activity (who can make the most saves in two minutes) or a counted activity (most saves per a fixed number of shots faced). 
 The keeper needs to move quickly from one "goal" to the next, finding good position and being ready to face the shot as soon as possible. Ask servers to vary their shots -- on the ground, low or high (but not over the keeper's head). Don't let the fact that the keeper is moving keep them from using proper hand position and getting their body behind the ball.

World Cup style shooting with goalies
Shots on Goal 
For the last part of the session, go to live fire. You can simply put shots on goal (could have the keepers come off one post, touch the middle of the 6-yard line or a cone in an equivalent spot, and then make the save). Or, you can put it into a more game-like situation (albeit with fewer shots) by playing 2v2 or 3v3 in a 35- to 40-yard field with two full-size goals. If you only have one frame, you can play "World Cup" style, with teams of two all attacking one goal against everybody else and the keeper. Rotate keepers every few shots. 

A small "pressure cooker" field like this, 40x30 yards or so with two full-size goals and a small-sided game in the middle, is a great way to end just about any goalkeeper training session. It allows for two keepers working at once with lots of shots in a match-like setting, and as a coach you can focus your coaching points on whatever the training topic is for that day.

GAME:  coach spacing and goal keeping especially starting the ball and using the goalie as a player on the field not just the goalie
regular scrimmage
