Shots with bounce

  • Organisation

    The goalkeeper trainer positions himself roughly 10-22 m away from the goal. A group of people is arranged between him and the goal. The goalkeeper is the goal and the balls are left with him.
  • Process

    The goalkeeper trainer shoots the balls against the group of people (the wall) at the goal. Resources: 1 field, goal(s)
  • Tip

    As soon as the goalkeeper sees the ball he must respond accordingly and try to save the ball or retain it. - The goalkeeper’s reaction time is delayed by the group of people and he has less time to react to the ball. - This exercise simulates a deflected shot. - The goalkeeper trainer can shoot the ball in different ways, e.g. a curved shot or an instep shot at the wall. - If the goalkeeper can’t save the ball, he throws it to the side. - The position of the wall should be changed again and again, so that the shooting position and the angle are different. - Depending on where the wall and the shooter meet and the strength of the shot, the trajectory and the speed of the ball will change.
