How To Dive Properly as a Goalkeeper

Learn how to dive properly as a goalkeeper in this soccer tutorial by OSA Coach PJ Steiner!


Key Points:

1 - Training Bounce

2 - HopStop

3 - Feet Shoulder Width

4 - Power Step

5 - Explode

6 - Hands Lead Body

7 - Match Height to Ball


Exercise to Practice:

For an exercise to practice we are going to do some diving. You will need your goalie gear, a cone and one ball.

Before we get into the diving lets get your body use to how this will feel and break the dive down into steps.

First practice the steps of the training bounce to the hopstop. Do this a few times.

After you feel good with that practice the steps of the power step to exploding to a dive.

After a few dives combine all the steps from training bounce to exploding to a dive. You don’t need a ball yet because I want you focused on the dive technique, not the ball.

Once confident place a ball one body length away from your cone at a 45 degree angle. Next, do 5 dives to your right side and 5 dives to your left side.

As you feel confident in your technique increase the distance between the ball and you. Increasing distance will help you improve your diving length.


What’s Wrong: 

If you aren’t getting enough power in your dive you might be taking too big of a power step. Experiment with the length of your power step. Not every goalkeeper has the same length of step. But remember it’s a power step, not a power lunge so don’t take too big of a step.


Bonus Tip:

Yell keeper! To train your communication skills and scary yelling voice, yell keeper when you dive. Yes, most keepers are crazy so even if you aren’t crazy, you want to at least sound crazy and be scary when you scream, KEEPER!
