Goalkeeper training exercises: All football exercises for the goalkeeper
Goalkeeper training differs in some respects from the training of field players in soccer. First, soccer goalkeepers need to improve their technical skills so they can perform well under pressure.

Improve goalie fitness
Your goalkeeper should be fit to achieve best performances and reduce the risk of injury. Since the motion sequences of field players differ, the training should be tailored to the muscle groups that are particularly stressed and the body should be trained for this. We will help you to choose suitable exercises, from the warm-up program to demanding situations like in the professional area.
Preventing opposing goals
If the opponent takes a shot on goal, the goalkeeper has to react quickly to catch the ball or save the shot. In addition to quick reflexes and reactions, the movement sequence must be internalized through good technical preparation. Kicks, jumping or passing to your own players also need to be practiced. Our numerous goalkeeper drills cover many situations from low balls to the ball at the highest point.
