Today is a perfect day! Since the turf should still be a little damp we should work on some technical things like: work on skipping, catching skips, skippy shots, one skip throws to teammates. So the theme is Skippy.
After practice notes:
Field player practiced crossing the ball from the corners and finihing. . .
Goalkeepers focused on crosses also.
Wet balls skip, Wet shots skip in crazy ways, Wet Crosses can be tricky. Catching a Wet cross can be difficult, so boxing needs to be a tool in your tool belt. Add the diving boxing practice to the warm up.
Reading a cross when struck- Keeper vs Away
Drop-Step footwork to go from shot position to covering a chip. Parry, Box or Catch.
Communication of distribution on wet days is key since throws can now skip farther than on a dry day.
At home: boxing/catching for keepers, sole of foot ball points with both feet.
