My goalkeeper philosophy focuses on footwork, repetition, and attention to detail. Each goalkeeper can expect me to modify drills and techniques that accommodate their strengths and weaknesses. I will not do the same drill every week but will do drills that work on the similar techniques weekly.
I like to focus on focus on footwork because this skill is the core of everything we do in goal, without good footwork we cant use the other tools that allow us to thrive in between the sticks. I am big on repetition because when we do something over and over and over again its a habit, whether we are aware of it or not. We will repeatedly do drills that create and solidify good habits so they become second nature, this is something that helped me have a successful career. Attention to detail is important because if we use our footwork, we display good technique, we can pay attention to details to be successful when it comes time use our training in game situations.

(no details provided)

Coach Derrick is great training my 14 year old Goalie. The technique and core skills required to be the best you can be. Already seen an improvement just in a handful of sessions.

Coach Derrick has a lot of knowledge in Goalie Training, which is very hard to find.

He is putting through my son some quality athletic training which my son really needs to improve his overall athleticism during a very difficult time for all kids that care about sports.
