Drill 2: Ball away from the sight-line and higher bounce on the ground

Take a look at the second drill of the series of training videos using Sklz Ball. In this video, we ask the goalie to throw the ball above the line of her head while keeping the eyes on the ground.

While working with the Peruvian goalkeeper Chiara Conetta, we decided to increase the challenge while using the Sklz Ball. In this case, the ball goes above her sight and falls right in front of her. The bounce is higher therefore her movements are a bit different than on the example of the drill 1 (click here to see that drill).
