Soccer Keeper Tips

Never cross your feet during a shuffle if you don't have to.

Anything in your hand and foot range is in the recovery zone. If the incoming ball is out of your reach, we are looking at a dive.

So you have to push off and make sure you have a soft landing. The body is fully extended when diving and you focus on the landing during these drills.

Learn hand shape and make a diamond shape to catch the ball. Let your elbows act like a shock absorber and watch the demo in this training video.

The Set Position means we are in a forward position to be able to stop balls that are kicked at any level. Practice the cross-shuffle from the set position. Adam demonstrates on Justin with some side volleys.

Another drill in the video is the grass-cutter move. This is where hands are low and you do a diving save. Make sure your hands are in the correct position to avoid injury. One hand behind the ball and one hand on top is the proper way to attack the ball during a grass-cutter save.

Goalkeepers need to use their height to get above the action because that is an advantage goalies have over other players.
