A typical goalkeeper session that I run starts with a game of some sort to get the player mentally tuned in and ready for the work ahead. After this I move into a basic dynamic warmup. After this, I incorporate footwork and handling into a few different drills to focus on quick feet and comfortability catching the ball. Next I move into basic diving to get the goalkeeper used to hitting the ground. After this, I move into a series of drills designed to work a specific skill that I have decided is important for a well rounded goalkeeper. These skills include but are not limited to: angle work, crosses, 1v1s, power diving and shots from distance. If time permits, I like to finish the session with some distribution from feet or hands and some core work. I like to tailor my sessions specifically to the needs of the goalkeeper that I am working with.

Client Reviews

Coach Alec is an excellent coach. The session with my daughter was both productive and fun. She scored two goals the next day in her AYSO game! She can't wait for the next sessions!

Alec is a great coach. Not only did he help improve my cardio and endurance, ball handling, shooting and defending skills, but also my knowledge of the game. Because he is a goalie he had some great shooting drills. Additionally, his insights into reading an offender's body language really helped me think about defending in a new light.
