Goalkeepers who can make tough saves can be the difference between winning a game and losing it. Coach Hamilton shows you how to design training sessions for goalkeepers that maximize their goal coverage and give them an edge in making a reaction save when the time comes.
Former University of Florida Assistant Coach Jason Hamilton covers all of the coaching points for each drill before he starts each session. Using practice footage, he demonstrates how to develop the drills that build confidence as well as fitness and skill levels in goalkeepers as they prepare to handle difficult shots. Key coaching points include:
Coach Hamilton puts his keepers through their paces as he implements drills for warmups, drills to improve techniques, and games apply those skills at full speed. The goalkeepers demonstrate how to improve handling through rebounds, reactions, and challenging the shooter. They also demonstrate drills to improve extension diving, stretching your range out past the goal posts.
Before each training segment, Coach Hamilton breaks down the drills and clearly explains the purpose for each one. This video also includes several competitive games that can be used with goalkeepers to reinforce and apply the drills.
This is an excellent video for coaches of advanced players who already have some experience at the goalkeeper position.
