In modern day football all goalkeepers need to be comfortable when dealing with back passes.
What this session is about
- Goalkeepers receiving a back pass under pressure.
- The defenders making angles to receive.
- Starting a new attack from the goalkeepers pass out.
What to think about
Goalkeepers need to work with the outfield players often to develop their receiving and passing techniques.
It is important that team mates make themselves available to receive a pass from the goalkeeper.
Full backs can do this by going wide to give the goalkeeper an angle to pass to. Goalkeepers should always kick through the line of the ball not across it.
- 30 x 30yd area for the session expanding to a 40 x 30yd area for the development and game.
