Tomo is your prototypical “soccer guy.” A four year starter at Shippensburg University, Tomo owned the defensive midfield with his awesome vision of the game and hard-nosed style of play. An avid Chelsea fan, he’s left scratching his head wondering what owner Roman Abramovich will rotate through Stamford Bridge. Tomo also blogs about Chelsea and the English Premier League on his site TomoTimes.

  1. I don’t understand how this is a Goalie game. You mention the shots but never mention the goalie. Is the goalie part simply the goalie getting the opportunity to block all of these shots and to do so quickly?

    My apologies if I am misunderstanding.

    Hi Jason –

    Our system allows us to post a single drill into multiple categories, so the coach can focus on the skill area where needed. For instance, in a shooting drill with goalies, it’s going to get posted in both “Shooting” and “Goalkeeping.” Now, depending on how you are organizing your session, you can use this shooting drill to hone in on your player’s technical skills or your keeper’s fitness and technical abilities. It really just depends on the coach’s need and focus that day.

    We can probably do a better job of explaining various components when a drill can be used in multiple ways. Thanks for the feedback!


  2. Jason,

    I thought I had this under a shooting drill when I set this up…

    However, this is also very much goalie oriented drill and I can guarantee you your keeper will be exhausted after this one. I think a key to training a keeper is to get as many reps in as you can. Seeing shots from different angles, different speeds, different movements. Our other intern Megan can probably attest to this (she was a keeper in college).

    In this drill your goalie will have to react extremely fast because after that first “power” shot the next shot is coming right after! Give this drill a try and let me know how it goes 🙂
