It is important that our Goalkeepers are trained specifically for their position. From footwork, to handling, to diving correctly, there is so much to learn and focus on with this position. It is difficult for a coach to fully teach all there is to know/learn for this position during the team practice, which is why Grove United will be offering this specialized training. We have partnered with Big Cat Goalkeeping to provide the specialized training our goalies need.
Along with the proper technical and tactical aspects of goalkeeping, there is another important issue that will be covered in training and that is injury prevention. Our goalies will be trained in the proper way to dive and land to prevent unnecessary injuries that can occur if they have not been taught proper form.
This program is offered to our Grove United Gks as part of their club fees. Even if your son/daughter does not play GK a lot, please feel free to attend to learn the basics and develop confidence!
