Coaches across the country tend to think that the only way to develop a goalkeeper is by doing the same or similar drills that we see such goalkeepers as David de Gea, Neuer, Allison, etc do in youtube videos. The typical mind set is, “If it works for the pros it must work for the youth gk.” The reality is that it wont, pro goalkeepers train daily while most youth gks do one or two gk sessions per week. But the biggest difference is one goalkeeper is already developed while the other one isn’t. This and many other reasons are why typical gk sessions that focus on HANDLING SHOTS, ANGLE WORK, and/or CROSSING & FINISHING are not time efficient for development. The way that a youth gk should be developed is by including the following; high rep rate, low rest rate, body mechanical focus, and specific element implementation. Then creating drills that always include a detailed focus in Vertical dive, 1v1 implementation, parallel dive, awareness in distribution, and aerial understanding. Welcome to @kronisacademy
