What to Expect at the Empire United Elite Goalie Camp
A soccer game can be divided into three moments; Attacking, Defending and Transition. During these three moments, the modern soccer goalie has very specific jobs to do. The goalie must save shots (Defending), pass the ball to a teammate (Attacking) and quickly move into the right position after a change of possession (Transition). And during all these moments the goalie also has to be a verbal leader and a coach. During the camp, goalies will work on their role during all those moments.
The job of the goalie has been broken down into four specific training topics;
1. Saving Shots, 2. Intercepting Through Balls and Dealing with a Breakaway/1v1,
3. High/Low Crosses, and 4. Distribution.
We rotate through these four topics every training session, but when the main topic of a session is for example Distribution, the goalkeeper will still work on all other aspects of goalkeeping too. Distribution could be coupled on High Crosses from the Flanks and Saving Shots. Each training activity will be in a game setting and consist of several game realistic actions.
With this approach, we are able to create well-rounded, modern soccer goalies. And every training session is full of variation and therefore exciting and fun!
During the camp, goalies will be working on individual technical skills, but in a broader game-like setting. For example: while the main topic of the training session is Saving Angled Shots, the exercise will also cover agility, distribution and catching high balls. All activities will therefore be very game realistic.
