Technical program

Monday: Reactivity - Many drills of the Spanish school to improve the reflexes and accelerate reaction times.

Tuesday: Position - You do not always need a spectacular dive to make a big save. The right position is the key to success.

Wednesday: High coming out - The goalkeeper must be the master of the penalty area. Some drills of the German school to improve the timing and increase courage and self-esteem.

Thursday: Low and breakaway coming out - The 1vs1 situations are a matter of timing and cold blood. Some drills of the Italian school to improve the ball attacking.

Friday: Communication and feet working - The communication is the most important skill for a goalkeeper, it’s possible to prevent many dangerous situation by only using the voice. Also, the modern goalkeeper touches more balls with his feet than with his hands and plays an important role in the build up. This session will be focused on how to communicate with teammates recreating game situations in which the goalkeeper finds himself using his feet.
