Coaches just a real quick Coaching education piece in regards to goalkeepers distributing the soccer ball Okay, we’re indoors right now because it’s storming outside But you’ll get the picture of what we want in terms of goalkeeper distribution if I’m a goalkeeper And I’ve gathered the ball. I’ve got some options Okay, if you want your goalkeeper to play quickly They can quickly run to the edge of our box and release a ball with the good throw Okay So if they think that they can quickly make a decision and sometimes you can guide them if you see that it’s a crowded box But you have a player that you can release in the midfield You can yell play quickly play quickly and they can run to the edge of that box and release a good One-handed throw or they can throw it like that if they need to especially if they’re a little bit younger Okay. Another option they have is to roll the ball out Alright and that would happen maybe with them gathering the ball and then you guiding them maybe to say hey be patient Just hold it just hold it or The more that they make that decision on them by themselves the better so if they hold it and they’re patient their defenders are gonna open up right and left and Then they want to roll the ball out. All right, so it needs to be a good roll We don’t want them throwing it to a defender when the ball is bouncing towards a defender It’s going to take that defender extra touches to bring it down and then to play it forward So if we can roll it along the ground out to our defender That’s a good choice a very good choice for them. The last option would be for them themselves To set the ball down Dribble maybe a touch or two and then play a pass forward. Keep in mind That with our rules if they roll it out. The the restraining line is going to be there the other team can not pressure until the defender receives the ball if they decide to just drop it and They’re gonna dribble themselves. Then the other team can pressure as soon as they’ve set that ball down So these are just a few ideas in terms of goalkeeper distribution We start our goal cap goal keeping classes on Monday for the fall season So if you have goalkeepers that you think might benefit from being involved with a goalkeeper class That’s a great opportunity for them.
