Objective

Warm up your goalie by over emphasizing the step across the crease and making saves by bringing your body behind the ball.

Description of Drill-Execution

Have your goalie get in goal and start on the right post with their right foot touching the post.  The coach will stand about 7 to 10 yards away and look to shoot a ball at the left post.  When the shot is taken the goalie will take the fast, long step across the crease and look to make the save.

The step requires a quick jump and keeping your eyes on the ball.
