In The Line Of Fire

SoccerSpecific

Emphasis:
Being brave

Set-up:
Goalkeeper stands on the goal line, and the server stands 6 yards away with a group of balls.

Objective:
The server hits volleys from his/her hands, as hard as he/she can, right at the goalkeeper.  The goalkeeper must be brave enough to make the save any way he/she can.  A set consists of 6-8 repetitions.

Progressions:

  1. If a goal is scored, add 1 more volley to the set.
  2. Have the goalkeeper start by facing the goal each time between the service.

Coaching Points:

  • Get your hands out in front of your body.
  • Don’t take your eye of the ball.
  • Making a save on the first strike sets the tone for the rest of the set.
