    During this session players will develop their understanding of:

    • basic goalkeeping techniques to protect the goal
    • a goalkeeper’s attitude: blocking; diving; protecting
    • distribution skills and how to build the attack
    • the goalkeeper’s role as part of the team.

    Guarding the goal


    Multiple goal games



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

    • How would you adapt or tweak the practice to make it appropriate to your own players?
