Advancing the Drill: Butterfly Blocker Save

By Maurice Tanel

In the above video, Marcus is demonstrating how we advance the drill to develop the Butterfly Blocker save technique for a performance profile student.

Here we are advancing the drill through a series of drill successions in order to continuously develop the Butterfly Blocker Save technique towards the ultimate execution goal of maximum rebound control during in-game performance.

    • The succession of these drills, challenges the technical execution, tactical execution and develops the tempo adjustment from transitional explosiveness to a controlled save.
    • Each drill succession allows the student to focus on:

    • Technical execution at a Controlled Training Speed

    • Tactical execution with transitional explosiveness at a Dynamic Training Speed

    • ‘Recovery to Position’ awareness on the rebound at a Reaction Training Speed

When working with young goalies we must ensure the progression of skills and advancing of drills will allow the student to gradually, safely and with confidence, maximize that value of the drill to better improve skills.

Profile Based Training Process promotes the skill progression that encourages the student to slowly execute the skill with the objective on learning the skill details and the proper movement.

Don’t focus on what performance results will get you notice but rather the personal growth process that will help you improve and reach your goals.
