Stretch out your hand closest to the post to stop in-zone play in the slot.

Remain in position until you are sure that the player has moved on behind the goal cage. Perform a fast and controlled sweeping motion. Keep your chest and head facing forward.

Pitching techniques - one

The first floorball goalie pitching technique has alot of similarities to cricket fast bowling or javelin, where you run and then throw the ball. 

It is important to use your whole body and not just the arm. If you throw with your right arm, then at the same time you bring back your right arm back you should move your left arm up.

Speed is created through the stretch between the right arm and hip and shoulder rotation - make sure to follow through. Where you place the bounce is important for the length of of the throw.

Pitching technique two - underarm throw

In the second pitching technique Stefan illustrates it is important to make good use of your wrist and release the ball close to the floor. Make sure you bend your knee in order to get close to the floor.

This technique makes it very easy for the receiving player to get control of the ball.
