AskDave With the new season approaching how can I make sure my goalkeeper comes out for the ball more? Last season he stuck so solidly to his line, it’s almost as if his feet were glued there MORE
I am enrolled on a goalkeeping level 1 course but my skills aren’t great. Does this matter?
In a word, no. Naturally, any kind of coaching course requires a basic skills base, just as it requires a basic understanding of the game and its principles, but coaching is about passing on instructions, techniques and knowledge rather than to perform yourself.
Goalkeeping level 1 is a fairly straightforward course anyway, featuring warm-ups, cool downs and basic techniques including footwork, positioning, handling and diving.
