English term or phrase:Saving the Ball
Saving the Ball
A successful goalkeeper maintains a “ready stance” at all times. This allows him to respond quickly when the ball comes his way.
▪ Feet should be shoulder-width apart and square to the ball.
▪ Toes should be also square to the ball, knees flexed.
▪ The body’s weight should be on the balls of the feet with arms at waist level.
▪ Goalkeeper position should be one to three yards in front of the goal line. This will keep the ball from rolling into the goal if it is fumbled.
