Drills for Keeper (on own)

Postby dimi_mc Thu Sep 08, 2011 11:55 pm

Hi,

Are there any drills a keeper can do without a partner to fire balls at them?

Cheers :)

I like to go down to the pitch and give myself a target to hit with a clearing pass, such as get the ball to land in the corner of a far restrainer or what not to give me a better idea of how much power to put into a clear.

That aside I can't think of a great deal.. Wall ball of course and maybe put a few cones out and practice your dodges on them (always helpful for running the clear).

Get a machine that fires cricket balls at 90+mph replace the balls with lacrosse ones, point it towards the goal (not sure if this works) then stand in goal and hope for the best :lol:

walking the line is pretty good for muscle memory and improving your technique

You might laugh but the England goalies did this twice a week at Old Trafford (cricket ground) leading up to the World Games. Reason was that we don't have players that shoot 90mph+ in this country. They've obviously never seen Ben Mitchell shoot.

At first when I was typing this I was only having a joke but I can say, the more I think about it, it does seem like a good idea if done properly.
