  • Tip

    Ongoing training of targeted punting-/goal kick-/shot at goalor throwing techniques and saves. - The goalkeeper must constantly be aware of where the shooter is. - If the opponent shoots from of far-off position from the goal, a quick shift to the ball can be advantageous, because the goal may be left open. - Shoot specifically in the corners and watch the goalkeeper. If the goalkeeper stands too far out of the goal a lob is also a promising option. - Vary the speed of the actions from quick, controlled, preparatory and expectant. - Correct the positional play, goalkeeper, shot/throw techniques again and again - To increase the fun factor, run several actions in succession
