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.

Proper footwork is critical, and the foundation required to maximize the area the hands can cover.
Knowledge of each keeper's individual strengths and areas of challenge make angle play a huge tactical mindset for each keeper to further develop.
It is extremely important that keepers are trained with the big picture; assessments of "worst case scenarios" have to be answered.
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.
Proper training to increase the keepers foot speed can lead to better closing and better handling.
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."
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.
