All young goalkeepers are not created (or trained) equally. There are certain factors that Coach G looks at when evaluating a potential goalkeeper to join his team.
When assessing young female goalkeepers, there are the obvious factors like athleticism & quickness, height & body type, and general technical ability that are pretty easy to immediately identify. But there are three more factors that separate an average goalkeeper from one who can play at the highest level of women’s college soccer.
The three special qualities that Coach Guerrieri will discuss today are: 1) Leadership and relations with her teammates, 2) Functional foot skills, and 3) Cross Taking & high balls.
Coach G will be discussing all of these special factors and more, but in this presentation, he will especially be focusing on the most neglected skill that young goalkeepers are trained, and go into detail into the differences between average and championship level goalkeepers when dealing with balls above their shoulders as well as the footwork and tactics we use in training them to be efficient in controlling the danger areas near our own goal.
