Lateral jump + throw

  • Organisation

    Construction of an obstacle course, according to the diagram. The goalkeeper stands on one side of the construction, the goalkeeper coach (GC) stands with the balls on the penalty spot.
  • Process

    The goalkeeper laterally jumps with one leg over the stanchions. After the last stanchion the GC throws a high ball at the goal, so that the goalkeeper really has to stretch in order to reach the ball. Intensity: 4-6 Balls. Afterwards change of legs. Learning aid: 1 Full-size goal, 5 stanchions
  • Tip

    - One-legged jumps=> serve the development of the ability to push off. (increasing maximum and explosive power with restricted goal kicking time), that is to say the take-off speed. Jump forwards off and land on the right foot’s ball of the foot. Short contact with the floor with an explosive sprint. The left foot hits the ground to the front. - Short ground-time. - For every defensive action the body has to be brought behind the ball. -- laterally shifted jumps (skier jump/movement) => with a torso bent slightly forwards, jump off forwards with alternating right and left legs (with the right leg; forwards right and with the left; forwards left). It is important that the take off and the landing occur on the balls of the feet, whereby the arms swing supportively. When the standing leg lands after the jump, the other leg is bent (no ground-time). Look straight ahead.
