Sprint + shot on goal

  • Organisation

    A cone is set up to the side of the goal. The goalkeeper stands in the goal and the goalkeeper trainer positions himself, with the balls, 11-16 meters in front of the goal.
  • Process

    The goalkeeper sprints (or runs sideways of backwards) to the cone, sprints back to the goal and receives a shot by the goalkeeper trainer. 1-3: Paths Resources: 1 field goal, 1 cone or more
  • Tip

    : Explosive start to the cone, staying close to the cone when running around it and run as fast as possible back to the goal line. - Just before the goalkeeper trainer touches the ball the goalkeeper does a small jump with both legs or takes a small step forward, spreads his arms out, bends his knees a little and stands on the balls of his feet. His feet should point in the direction of the trainer and are roughly hip-width apart. His upper-body is bent slightly forward and his eyes are fixed on the ball. - Regardless of how the balls approach the goal the goalkeeper must try to get his body behind the ball. - The aim is to keep hold of the ball. If the goalkeeper is unable to do this the ball should be parried to the side.
