Collapse dive warm-up, hand eye coordination

Goalkeeper starts sitting down.
Place two servers on both sides, slightly in front, and facing the goalkeeper.
Place a cone 15-18 yards away from goalkeeper.

The goalkeeper starts in a sitting down position and works side to side on collapse dives.  The serves are from the server’s hands and roughly 1-2 feet above the ground.  The goalkeeper does a set of 6 and then the servers start to scoot backwards while the goalkeeper makes his way forward diving at a 45 degree angle.  The goalkeeper works until they reach the cone.  Rotate the goalkeeper and repeat.


  1. Same as above but catch the ball with one hand.
  2. Increase the speed and timing of the serves.

Coaching Points:

  • Soft hands, absorb the serve.
  • The more you attack the ball with your hands, the faster you get to the cone.
