Goalkeeper - Down Up Drill

Drill Objective:

This goalkeeper drill is designed to help goalkeepers get up quickly from the ground and get set for a shot.

Drill Setup:

Goalkeeper sits in the center of the goal about 3-5 yards from the goal line. The coach/server should stand about 8-10 yards from the keeper with a supply of balls.

Drill Instructions:

On the coaches command, the keeper should quickly stand, set their feet, get into ready position, and catch the ball that is tossed towards the goal by the coach. The keeper immediately returns the ball to the coach and returns to the seated position. Repeat this for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.

Drill Coaching Points:

  • Make sure the goalkeeper gets off the ground quickly.
  • Make sure keeper is aware of their position and location in front of the goal.
  • Keeper should get set and ready themselves for the shot quickly.
