Goalkeepers programs at Campus Experience.
The goalkeeper is a key player in a football team who is increasingly taking centre stage in key actions of the match. Therefore, it is important to properly develop the training from an early age and establish a solid base on which to build the knowledge: skill, technique, speed, displacement and personality.
The goalkeeper’s role is to intercept the ball by protecting his goal and to engage sporadically in offensive and defensive actions with maximum effectiveness. It is important to apply a complete development plan for this position from an early age: a specific training of physical, technical, tactical and psychological aspects. Below, we highlight the golden rules for the initiation stage training of goalkeepers:
1.- Solid base: a strong knowledge base and a good understanding of the game will provide the security and confidence required for this position.
2.- Specific work: perform specific work of repetition to develop the maximum qualities of the future goalkeeper. If during the season your club does not offer personalized training, a very good option is to enroll in one of the goalkeepers programs offered at Campus Experience where we will develop all the important facets.
3.- Team sessions and integration: performing joint goalkeepers training, with 2 or more kids, is very recommended to develop competence, performance and companionship. Also, when the goalkeeper is not doing specific work, they should be integrated with the rest of the team.
4.- Coordination and location: the work of coordination and location is vital in this position. It is necessary to have good coordination to make gestures in the shortest possible time, and a correct location according to the game and position of the ball.
5.- Work psychological factors: working trust, security and concentration from an early age will favor future success. Likewise, it is vital to foster communication skills and leadership.
6.- Adequate equipment: imposing the need to use good equipment is important so that goalkeepers can properly exercise their movements and functions.
7.- Seek for fun: since it is a complicated and solitary position, it is necessary to look for fun practices and competitions and to heighten their understanding of the role of a goalkeeper
At Campus Experience Real Madrid Foundation, we have 2 specific programs for goalkeepers: Campus Experience Goalkeepers (day and residential camp) and High Performance Goalkeepers (day and residential camp). In both programs, we work to develop a good technical and tactical knowledge base and to enhance psychological factors. At Campus Experience we believe that any child with a good knowledge base, effort, perseverance and motivation is able to become a great goalkeeper.
