We’ve showcased a series of goalkeeper drills with the Suffolk University men’s goalkeepers, utilizing a wet tarp surface, which is a fantastic training tool for working on reactions with both goalkeepers and outfield players.
These drills work to improve agility, reflexes, anticipation, shot-stopping, diving, throwing and dealing with crosses/high balls.
We run through these drill variations:
- Warmup (reaction diving)
- Warmup (flick/punch/save)
- Warmup (180 spin and save)
- Wet tarp reactions: Shot-stopping from overarm throw
- Wet tarp reactions: Dealing with a crossed ball and shot-stopping from overarm throw
