    Need help here.
    I'm coaching a U15 team and I need some good 'one on one' goalie drills. My team goalie has great potential and needs something to work with. seems to have disappeared, anyone have other links, or drills...please.

    Anything Kahn does seems to be good enough to pass along.

    Munich's goal coach, Sepp Maier, himself one of the best goalies ever, places a large solid (opaque) object mimicking a wall [of players], but bigger, in front of the goal to block Kahn's view. Then he throws (or kicks) the ball over or around it to "surprise" Kahn.

    In theory this should improve your reaction time, as well as teach you proper positioning in the box. The former is a matter of learning, the latter a matter of the goalie's innate and intuitive awareness of his surroundings (situational awareness).

    The goalie also has to be the most flexible player on the team, so if you are not too proud, ask the coach of the cheerleading squad for some excercises. Being flexible helps make amazing saves, and can stave off serious injury, too. VERY important.

    Crosses are by far the most important things to work on, pratice with the whole team doing corners or have your two wingers whip in crosses from either side, with around 9 people in the box, 4 attacks and 4 defenders and the goal keeper.

    Look on the coaches board and a coach there asked the same question I don't know if it was you or not but a bunch of people responded to his question you should see the answers

    as advice to your keepers make sure they are a 100% focused on the when recieving it. during play they need to be focus on the whole field and talking constanly and organising the team and communicating but right when shots are about to be taken zone everthing out but the ball. it sounds easy to say but to have complete attention on the ball to be able to see which way it spin and the angle of the player's foot when striking the ball is critical. also
    expecial when players are shooting, keepers need to keep the wieght on their toes. to many fall backwards. keepers need to attack the ball. when diving they should be taking a step foward about at 45 degrees, this will cut down on the angle and the distance that is needed to be reached. last thing is foot work. keepers need the best foot work. sometimes the difference between a great keeper and the keeper that is on the national team is the great keeper may get one step and than dive for a ball. the national keepers may get 2 or 3 and not have to dive before the ball reaches them. this increases distance and saves the body from diving.
