Demographics of the Goalie Camp Turku 2012. Demographics made by Jouni Lappi.

Like every other player – a goalkeeper also needs separated approach in educational and training process. The lack of goalie coaches and easy access to the materials and literature related to the area of training, tactic and technique of handball goalkeeper is not optimal for goalies development.

Head coaches are rarely performing specific goalkeeper’s training, and training time subjugates to the other players, which affects negatively on goalkeepers preparation and form.

This is why the Goalie Camp project is great success in Finland and important link in development of the goalkeepers, and also in development of handball.
