This is an opportunity for EVERY goalkeeper to grow and improve as well as an opportunity for the club to develop more GK’s. GK trainings are designed to be one night of the week. The GK training may, or may not, be at the same time as your practice session. 

What to expect at age specific training:

Training should progress age group to age group.

U9/U10:            

May not see what they practice come through in games but that’s okay! Need to give them a chance to learn and play in game situations (SAFETY and FUN first).

Laying the foundation for: 

·      Stance & Ready Position

·      Positioning

·      Footwork (shuffle and the crossover)

·      Handling (contour catch & basket)

·      Communication (keeper & away) 

·      Distribution (bowling, volley, goal kicks)

U11/U12:          

Start to see what they practice come through in games.

Still too early to specialize but probably have one or two full time goalkeepers. Footwork Exercises

General Handling Techniques 

·      Positioning (Dynamic)

·      Handling (Side and High Contour) Ball kicked at different heights

·      Positional Play (Angle Arc/Vertical Positioning/Flank Positioning)

·      Introduction to Diving and Recovering. Focus on Low and Move to Mid-Level

·      Communication (contain, step, slide, back post coverage)

·      Distribution (back pass, punts, drop kick, throw –baseball vs sling)

·      1v1 Principles Introduces

U13/U14: 

Should see what you are coaching coming through in game.

Importance of agility training.

Coaches expectations should be clearly communicated(may differ from team to team).

·      Set/Ready Position (Back Set – shuffle, small hop, not backwards)

·      Handling (front smother, parrying)

·      Positional Play (starting the attack, Expanded range, 3 goals, inside vs outside penalty area, instep drive)

·      Diving (collapse and extension)

·      Distribution (mastering it, different types of balls & when, outlet with purpose on back pass)

·      Communication with Specifics (force in, force out, contain, no shot, block, wing, time, turn)

·      Introduce Set-Play Defense

U15/HS: 

Everything above plus more specific details

Strength Training Emphasized

·      Dealing with Crosses (catching, punching and organizing)

·      Dealing with back pass with pressure, giving good angles, distance and options. 

·      Communication and Leadership.

·      Play Over Distance. 

·      Set Play Organization

Qualities it takes to be a good GK:

Desire to play the position

Good hands….Ability to catch the ball in various situations

Ability to receive and delivery a ball

Confidence, ability to communicate

Athletic, quick, strong and agile

Mentally/Emotionally a strong and stable (pressure position)

How to identify a GK?

Bravery

Athletic Ability (coordination)

Confidence

Desire

Confidence

Trust/Teammate

When should they specialize?

Whenever the player wants. However, do not pressure the player into a position. Encouragement should be on the whole games. 

If starting early, still emphasize teaching the whole game first.

Technique starts first (young) and then as they age/progress you teach the tactics.

How do you develop leadership?

Let them take charge

Let them add input 

Let them help correct mistakes (self and others)

Let them watch other goalkeepers (part of learning what it should look like, sound like, etc)
