Goalkeeper Pressure Cooker Shooting and Passing Drill

Drill Objective:

This soccer drill is a great goal keeper drill. It will give your keeper a great workout while working on passing and shooting with accuracy.

Drill Setup:

  1. Set up 10 players in a circle around the center circle.
  2. Have the keeper stay inside the circle and give one of the attackers around the circle a ball.

Drill Instructions:

  1. Players around the circle must keep the ball moving with one-touch passes.
  2. At any time a player can shoot at the goalkeeper.
  3. The goalkeeper must continually anticipate a shot and react quickly.
  4. After fielding a shot, the goalkeeper returns the ball to one of the players around the center circle.

Drill Coaching Points:

  • Focus your attention on the keeper and their work ethic.
  • Their feet must be constantly moving them in position to stop every possible shot.
  • The keeper must react quickly to EVERY ball that is playable by the keeper.

Drill Variations

  • While warming up the keeper, instruct the players to pass balls in rather than taking shots.
