End of practice questions

Bring your team together and ask some open ended questions about the practice:

  • What does a goalkeepers ‘ready position’ look like? (knees bent, on toes, leaning slightly forward, hands by waist with palms facing in).
  • If you’re collecting a ball off the ground, how should you collect it? (with a scoop. Forearms close together, and cradle ball up to chest).
  • What about if the ball is shoulder height or above? (contour catch. Make a ‘W’ with hand to receive ball.)
  • Why is distributing with a throw usually better than punting? (because we get to keep possession on the ball!).
