Awesome Tips for Soccer Goalies

Postby markblake Sat Jun 24, 2017 1:24 pm

1. Focus

Be focused during the game even if the ball is far away from your 18 yard box. Many goalkeepers start to focus when the ball is near the 18 yard box which is a bad routine.

2. Monitor the Ball

Don't look for your opponent, look for the ball. Your primary mission as goalie is to save shoots from your opponents.

However, you should also keep in mind that you will need to leave your 18 yard box sometimes to clear the ball.

This will generally be a must at least once per game. You must therefore be prepared on this one and you cannot hold back. Instead you need to fulfill the run with determination.

3. Don't Wait

Don't stay on the line and wait for your opponent. Especially not in one vs. one situations. What you should is to run at your opponent and stretch your body to make yourself big.

By doing this your opponent will need to react faster which will lead to mistakes from their side. They will need to make quicker decisions which will lead to more mistakes.

4. Back Up

Your team should have a backup goalie, especially in tournaments with many games.

5. No Mistakes

When going up for crosses you cannot afford to make mistakes. Whatever you do, don't lose the ball while you are in the air.

You must also analyze the current situation carefully and don't jump when there is no way to reach the ball.

It is hard to say when you should, and when you should not jump. This is something that you will learn as your routine on the soccer field increases.
