Goalkeeper Training, Guideline and Technique

When it comes to soccer, the importance of the goalkeeper cannot be overstated. Goalkeeper training is really about honing your skills. Getting the best technical support and building a superior toolkit to stay in your career for life. You will need a program tailored to the specific skills and drills requirements of a goalkeeper if you want to be among the best. 

Black Eagles will help you get the most out of the goalkeeper training techniques. We work with adult and youth goalkeepers throughout Toronto and the GTA, with primary base in Mississauga. 

Our training regimen is based on:

  • Physical,
  • Technical,
  • Tactical,
  • And mental development.

Our aim is to improve the abilities and skills of our athletes. We make sure the athlete is ready for the pressure of playing this unique position. Our program will build your technique as well as confidence. Being trained directly by a certified coach, you will learn the fundamentals of expert goalkeeping. 

Guidelines for a Good Goalkeeper Training

  • Each session should be appropriate for players’ age and ability levels.
  • The smaller the group, the more focus on the goalkeepers. The ideal size for a training technique is two to four goalkeepers. The group can be bigger for condition training. 
  • Make practice interesting, intense, focused and varied. Depending on the age level.
  • Always move from easy to hard. From simple to complex.
  • Practice new techniques and then gradually combine them.
  • Combine coordination training with goalkeeper technique training.
  • The warm-up should always focus on a specific concept.
  • Exercises should be short, intense and demand full concentration instead of long sets with lots of repetitions. 
  • Exercises should approximate actual match play.
  • Goalkeepers need goals in every exercise (even if they’re just two cones).
  • Include motivational exercises at the end of every practice session.

The Importance of Good Technique for a Goalkeeper

Your goal is to have a successful career as a goalkeeper? Well, good technique is one of the single most important prerequisites. Therefore, a major objective of youth goalkeeper training is to execute the movement involved in goalkeeping techniques as automatically as possible. Black Eagles professional coaches know that no goalkeeper can master all or even most of the goalkeeping techniques perfectly and how far to push them in terms of technical development. 

Goalkeepers should strive to improve their skills

Just like field players, goalkeepers should strive to improve their technical and tactical skills. 

Coaches have to be resourceful. Sometimes a sympathetic educator and sometimes a tough drill instructor. However, a continuous and structured training program will always be effective in the long run.
