Dealing with cut backs from the dead ball line
Aim - To improve goalkeepers' ability to position themselves correctly from cut backs and to save from close range.
- 1. When the goalkeeper shuffles across goal make sure he/she takes small, quick steps to stay in contact with the ground, this will enable them to change direction quickly and at will.
- 2. Ensure that the goalkeeper does not come too far across goal as this will leave the corner they came from exposed.
- 3. Get in the set position ready to save.
- 4. Prepare the goalkeeper to improvise as he/she will have to react quickly and may have to save with their feet as well as their hands.
