Coaching the Goalkeeper

Coaching Goalkeepers

To play this position you have to have special skill and a different mindset from the rest of the team. Coaching the
position of goalkeeper is not easy – it really helps to have played the position yourself in order to understand
the ins and outs of this great position.

A good goalkeeper must have:

Determination

Toughness

Quickness

Catching

Leaping

Kicking

And the most important of all you must lead. Because you can see the whole field from your position, you can control your defense  like no other position on the field. Don’t yell at your midfielders – this can set a bad tone for the game.

For your speed agility ladder is the best great for your footwork your side to side moves and make sure you also practice with agility hurdles you can do some great training like you’re jumping ability your footwork to your speed strengthening your bursts  power you will thank me for them.

Remember that the soccer goalkeeper is one of the most important players on the field. He or she is the last line of defense. Wearing the right gloves and shoes can mean the difference between winning and losing the game.
