Goalkeeper training drills: Cover your angles

Be ready to face shots from all directions using this drill from Andrew Sparkes, Swansea City's head of academy goalkeeping
Set up
Mark out two small goals, side by side. A server stands in front of each goal, 12 to 15 yards away. The two servers have four balls each. 
A coach stands in between the two servers and points to the server he wants to shoot at goal. The goalkeeper must quickly get himself in position in the relevant goal – but the coach can change his mind and immediately point to the other server instead, forcing the goalkeeper to change direction quickly.
Reps: 8 balls per set
Sets: 3-5
How it helps
Improves the goalkeeper’s ability to change direction rapidly, while remaining balanced and ready to face a shot.
