Keepers line up behind one post. The coach prepares a number of balls from different angles to goal, and chooses one to shoot from.

The first keeper moves from the post towards the best “set” position, providing the best “angle” between goal and shooter.

Once the coach has made the shot, the next keeper readies for the coach to choose a new shooting location.

Once in place, the coach shouts “set” and the next keeper chooses a “set” position.

Tips for coaches – Confidence Cohesion Technique

Any coach can utilize these drills with their keeper. The objectives are the same – enhance footwork, follow the ball better with the eyes, and judge the flight of the ball.

A coach can use any one of the drills independently, and involve multiple players, especially attackers, to sharpen their skills too.

Employ 1v1 in your regular practice sessions – this will help your strikers as much as your keeper, and keep it “real” for the keeper.

Try to encourage the keeper to use these skills – their footwork, their eyes and reflexes, and be brave to make the judgement calls and decisions that will come up regularly in games.
