Footwork, fitness, diving technique

A four yard goal is set up about four yards from the goalkeepers starting position.
Place two flags one and two yards from the cone.
The server stands 6-8 yards in front of the four yard goal, with extra balls.

The goalkeeper must shuffle through the flags, run in front of and around the far cone, come up through the goal and get set for the shot.  Repeat 4-6 repetitions.


  1. Increase the size of the goal.
  2. Increase the number of flags.
  3. Server can hit a volley or half volley as well.

Coaching Points:

  • The last step should be diagonally sideways and forwards.
  • Cut down the shooters angle.
  • Get set for the shot.
