Hi I’m Vasili Uspensky, former VCU goalkeeper
and CoachUp Coach. And this is the goalie throw. This is Patrick. Patrick is fighting for a
spot on his varsity squad. And today, we’re gonna work on the goalie throw. The throw
is the goalie’s most effective mid-range pass. The throw is a windmill motion. You wanna
start with the ball down at your legs with your palm facing the open field. You wanna
step through and windmill to capture maximum momentum. Windmill the ball, releasing only
at its highest point. The ball should snap off your fingers like a jump shot. That sound is the sound of the ball just whipping
off your fingertips.
