GOALKEEPER TRAINING

Goalkeepers require specialized training to develop the proper technique, mental toughness, and physical demands required to be your team’s last line of defense. To succeed as a goalkeeper, players need to be well trained technically and tactically in order to command the box and keep the ball out of the back of the net.

TPS focuses on the development of the fundamentals of goalkeeping, these fundamental skills typically include footwork, positioning, and body control, catching, diving, throwing, and punting.

Footwork

Proper footwork is critical, and the foundation required to maximize the area the hands can cover.

Angle Play

Knowledge of each keeper's individual strengths and areas of challenge make angle play a huge tactical mindset for each keeper to further develop.

Positioning

It is extremely important that keepers are trained with the big picture; assessments of "worst case scenarios" have to be answered.

Cross Shooting

Crosses as well as shot-stopping are about giving each keeper the best fighting chance. Good starting position and proper field of play are keys to success.

Foot Speed

Proper training to increase the keepers foot speed can lead to better closing and better handling.

1v1 Breakaways

Perspective is always the key: on a one-on-one breakaway the pressure is on the forward, but when we see our opportunity we must "pounce to win."

Weight Distribution

The hands are strongest in front of our feet; with proper technique handling and angles of attack keepers can take the mystery out of catches vs. boxing saves.

Speed of Play

All technical forms of distribution are covered with the emphasis on speed of play in transition, moving quickly from defense to offense in order to catch our opponent out of position.
