Ping Pong Drill for Watching the Ball

 

A great drill for working on watching the ball the way through the save is taking shots with ping-pong balls. The balls dip, curve and changing pace force the goalie to stay "nose on the ball" all the way throughly or they are left grabbing at air as the ball dips at the last second.

This also forces goalies to be quick to step to the shot, patient committing their hands, which is great training for tough mid-range and inside shots. This is a great next progression from the "card toss" drill that is popular and effective!

Shout out to @issa_vincent2 for demoing the drill!
