Goal keeping & Football

 

Doing Body Shots

  • Keepers must be ready anytime.
  • Keepers must always be ready in position and concentrate.
  • The opponents cannot pounce on a rebound keepers hold onto the ball.
  • Techniques are learned to counteract shots from different heights.
  • Good footwork is very fundamental.
  • Get your body in lined with the shot.
  • Hold the ball close to your body.
  • Relax the body while holding the ball.
  • Straighten the body and grab the ball to your chest.

Catching the Shots

  • Confidence is a favorable quality in catching crosses.
  • Catching the ball above your head is not as easy as it looks.
  • Holding the ball behind with fingers pointing upward is useful when holding the ball in chest height or above.
  • Form a “W” by closing two thumbs together with two index fingers in between.
  • Closing the thumbs together will help secure the ball.
  • Avoid spilling the ball by holding the ball tightly. Relax your hands.
  • Clutch the ball into your chest.

Diving

  • Keep the ball out of the net. Make a diving save.
  • Sharp actions and good footwork are needed to do diving save.
  • Get into the position early.
  • Reach for the ball when you dive. Be on your toes and move your feet.
  • Bend your knees, dive and collapse that leg as you fall.
  • Keep your arms visible and reach out as far sa you can.
  • Try to hold on the shot.
  • Avoid chances of rebound by pushing the ball away from the goal, if you can't.
  • Immediately stand back after driving the save.

Ball Roll

  • Catch the ball from the opponent as quick as possible.
  • For short distances, do a rolling throw.
  • Place the ball on the palm of your dominant hand.
  • Bend your knees and forward the opposite leg.
  • Get the ball out.
  • Transfer your weight forward, bring the arm through and release the ball when it reaches the level of your front foot.
  • Increase the distance and exaggerate the follow through.

The Throw

  • Throw the ball quickly and precisely.
  • The distance and accuracy achieved by throwing the ball serves as a good counter attack.
  • Clear the ball at a greater distance and height by an overarm throw.
  • It is more precise than kicking the ball.
  • Stay on a side position, bend your knees, and put your weight on your back foot.
  • Position your hand under the ball and keep your arm straight.
  • Direct your target by using the free hand.
  • After knowing the direction of the target, bring the free arm down and raise the arm with the ball from the back onto the top of your shoulder.
  • Transfer your weight forward as you transfer the ball.
  • This resembles the cricket's bowler action.
  • Focus on the aptitude of the arm downward on the same line over longer distances to keep accuracy.

The Kicking

  • A good-drop kick is the easiest way to get the ball upfield.
  • A long kick serves as a good weapon to score.
  • Hold the ball with both hands and aim it in front of you.
  • Release the ball as you move forward.
  • Meet the lower half of the ball with your kicking foot before it bounces.
  • Let the ball bounce and kick the ball while it springs in the air. This action equates with a greater chance of miskick.
