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
How it helps
Improves the goalkeeper’s ability to change direction rapidly, while remaining balanced and ready to face a shot.
