Use this Stepping Drill to Create Muscle Memory for Better Goalkeeping!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, November 12, 2013

In this drill, the crucial element of making the correct step to the ball is reinforced by Phil Barnes, Assistant Coach for the 2013 NCAA Championship – University of North Carolina Women’s Lacrosse team. You will learn a simple, yet effective workout that involves many repetitions to create muscle memory.

Stepping Drill

Player Movements: Breakdown begins with the first step or lead step, then by the back foot following and finishing even with the lead foot. This teaches the goalie to be in a ready position after each save.

Drill Essentials: Notice the proper form is displayed, then repeated multiple times to create “muscle memory”.

Drill Tips: Make sure the stick head and foot arrive at the same time. It’s fundamental in getting to the ball and making the save.
