Due to the nature of our vigorous and very demanding training regimen, we like to reward our goalkeepers with fun and games at the end of the camp. Although they are fun, they are still competitive and integrate a critical game-like experience to training, and that is something that cannot be taught through drills.
Being a goalkeeper, one must be very explosive to get from post to post or from the goal box to the ball. Many of our drills incorporate the use of plyometrics to build the necessary strength to accomplish that and more.
