Goalkeeper Warm Ups
At the start of every soccer practice or prior to each soccer game, a great soccer goalkeeping drill for incorporating your goalkeeper and warming up your shooters at the same time is a rapidfire shooting gallery drill from the 18yard line.
A number of players spread out across the 18yard box and count off in order.
Each player has a ball and is ready to shoot.
A coach stands off to the side and calls out a number, who then shoots the ball at 50%.
Shooters should be instructed to put balls near or close to the keeper to start.
As soon as the keeper makes the save, another number is called and the player shoots
Continue until all players have shot. Shots can be harder and tougher as the keeper gets warm.
