Let us train on saving bouny balls. We guess everybody already had the situation during a game that the ball bounces through the slot and the striker swings his stick and hits the ball perfectly that it bounces or flies straight towards your goal. This ballistic curve of the ball is unfamiliar for a floorball goalie and requires a good reflexes and reaction speed. With this exercise, we want to train these kind of shots and manage it with a tennis racket.
How to do it?
You are at centre of the goal at the goal line in the initial position
Field player with tennis racket
Field players stays with a full box of floorballs in front of the slot
Field player grabs one ball from the box and hit it with the tennis racket towards the goal – he can vary between direct shots and a bouncing shot
The aim of the goalie is to save the ball
Increase the degree of difficult
Get closer to the goal
Vary the position of the field player
Include a preceding movement of the goalie from a post to the centre to bring the goalie in a moved position
Increase the frequency
Place obstacles in the ballistic curve which could change the course of the ball
