Goalkeeping Tips to stay on top of your game
To all goalkeepers
Thank you for choosing this extremely demanding and enjoying position.
As you know the position of goalkeeper is unique and it requires not only physical and technical ability, but also enormous mental strength and character.
Here are some Tips that will keep you on the right track with your further development.
Training and game preparation
They say you're not tall enough?
To be honest, being tall and having the right size will make your life as a keeper much easier, but it is not everything.
There are keepers who may not have the size, but they possess very good athleticism and are able to read the game in the way that puts them in position to make the save. They are very explosive, incredible quick, and extremely intelligent. They know that they are not going to come out for certain balls, so they organise their team to take that in to consideration. They make the right distribution choices (as in modern game, playing from the back and distributing is more than 65% of keepers play). These keepers can have great success at the game?s highest level despite being average height for the position.
At the end
They say keepers are crazy. It attracts the most competitive individuals because every goal scored against them is like personal battle lost. You know that moment when making that save, when hugging the ball, you?re hooked. So goalkeeping is not crazy, it?s unique, it?s infectious. Enjoy the position, catch every ball like it is you last and NEVER GIVE UP!!!
Thank you again
