Practices and training for a Goalkeeper

Extracts from this document...


Practices and Training No one in sport and football is considered perfect, that's why the elite performers train and practise day in day out to try to improve further. In this section I will use the research in section three to produce a training programme for Andy Marshall to use in order to improve his weaknesses and maintain his strengths. In goalkeeping, handling and catching are arguably the most important attributes. Marshall's catching and handling aren't too great, therefore I will design a training programme which will hopefully improve Marshall as a goalkeeper. The reasons I have chosen the attributes I have, rather than something such as communication which has a lower mark, is because I feel catching and handling are more important to be good at as goalies are the only player on the team that can use their hands and you can build a longer training programme around catching and handling. ...read more.


1ST DRILL * Coach stands 5 - 7 yards away with ball in hand * Coach simulates shots by rolling ball to the side, lobbing over the head, throwing the ball downwards to replicate downwards header, but always gives the keeper a chance to make the save. * If keeper misses the ball or pushes it away, coach immediately picks up another ball while keeper is recovering. * When save is made, keeper must first throw the ball back to the coach, before doing anything else. Keeper uses the momentum of the throw to aid in the recovery back to the alert and alive position. * Give rest periods when fatigue sets in. Drill should last twenty minutes This game should improve handling as it requires good hands to save the variation of shots. 2ND DRILL * Team A is shooting on team B's goalkeeper, starting from the line that is 40 yards away from the goal. ...read more.


* Strikers try to score, keepers attempt to cut off cross or save shot. * Can progress by adding defender(s) and more attackers. This will improve catching as Marshall will have to catch the crosses. It will also improve communication, something he is also poor at as he will have to shout 'KEEPERS' when he wants to claim the cross. This lasts another 20 minutes. GAME A half an hour game to practise all the things that have been learnt and practised, it is also a time to practise the attributes not practised in the drills to maintain the good performances in them areas. COOL DOWN A fifteen minute cool-down to reduce the lactic acid build up in the muscles and reduce the risk of future injury and cramp. After several weeks of this training programme, Andy Marshall should significantly improve his handling and catching. He must have patients though because it isn't going to come to him straight away, he must be dedicated to the programme. ?? ?? ?? ?? Anthony ...read more.
