Train Goalie Reaction Time

Lehigh uses a racquetball court to add an interesting wrinkle to goalie training.

Lehigh University defensive coordinator and goalie coordinator, Errol Wilson, uses the “Face the Wall” drill to help teach his goalies how to quickly react to shots. This is a great drill for individual goalie work as it can be used any time of the year to improve vision, footwork and body movements.

Used the wall reaction drill almost every winter club practice. The second wall is a nice addition for something different.
