12 - 16

SESSION: goalkeeping - distribution and passing

    In this session, former FA national goalkeeping coach, Jack Robinson, delivers a series of distribution and passing practices for goalkeepers aged 12-16.

    Key objectives

    Develop player understanding of:

    • passing and distribution techniques – using both hands and feet
    • pass selection and quality
    • creating space to receive
    • receiving techniques: inside and outside of the foot
    • decision making under pressure
    • communication skills: verbal and non-verbal
    • core technical skills: handling, catching and throwing.

    After you have watched this, ask yourself the following questions:

    • How would you adapt or tweak the practice to make it appropriate to your own players?
    • What additional challenges could you set to make the practice easier or harder for individuals or your group?
