Hi! I’m Mark Wilson from United Soccer Academy.
We are here today with Expert Village, and we are working with goalkeepers in soccer.
We are going to take a look at how the goalkeeper distributes the ball using the throw. The
goalkeeper’s end, his or her goal area, will sometimes have to distribute the ball throwing
it out to do this; this usually happens after they made a save. So let’s assume that I have
made a save that is coming from this side here. Their shot comes in, I make the catch
and immediately I turn to try to distribute the opposite side. I have to get the ball
down low here, my other arm is outstretched, I’m pulling my arm the direction where I want
the throw to go, and then I come over the top and release. By doing so I get the power
that I need, I rotate my shoulder over the top, and sometimes I can step through to get
a little bit more power if I’m looking for the distance for someone who is making a run
on the opposite side.
