Goalkeeping



diving saves
Be on your toes and move your feet to give yourself the best chance of reaching the ball with your dive.

Bend the knee nearest to where you will be diving and collapse that leg as you fall to the side.

Keep your arms well out in front of you so that you can reach as far as possible or react to any possible deflection on the shot.
