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.
