This book is a training methods guide for goalkeeper training, with the aim to be interesting, varied and above all, suitable for beginner and advanced players alike. Goalkeeping has changed a great deal in recent years. A goalkeeper doesnt only have to worry about catching or saving balls anymore - he/she is expected to actively be part of setting up play. The modern goalkeeper is, in a way, a sort of sweeper who should be able to organize the defense and then, when they are in possession, quickly turn defense into offense. If the opponent is hard to break down, then the goalkeeper serves as a focal point for the effective distribution of the ball - and as an extra player when faced with aggressive pressing. The goalkeeper should always be able to adapt him/herself to new situations in games and be able to keep the ball in the game. The goalkeeper should be able to master all of the various passing techniques including short passing with the instep, long passes struck with the laces, clearances, goal kicks, drop kicks etc., while at the same time not neglecting traditional goalkeeping skills. Understandable instructions for aspects of training and detailed, comprehensive exercise descriptions make this book clear and simple for coach and athlete alike, no matter the training level.
