Hi! I'm Vanja Radic, a professional handball goalkeeper coach.
I have started developing my coaching methodology already in 2004, when I got my senior handball coaching degree, with the main focus and my thesis topic on coaching handball goalkeepers.


I started my coaching journey back in 2010, and as I was starting out - I've realized pretty soon that there were not really many places where I could learn the exact, correct steps of progression for teaching all details of proper goalkeeper technique.

Since it was impossbile to find educational materials on how exactly to start properly coaching young goalkeepers, I was literally forced to create my own coaching methodology right away, which I have been molding, adjusting and reshaping since then for years.

Alongside with my coaching, in 2012 I have launched my website (the one you're at now) and I started publishing educational articles and videos. This is how my work started being exposed and seen in many other countries.

I was always extremely passionate about sharing my knowledge and helping other coaches and goalkeepers get inspired with some of my insights and ideas about goalkeeper training, more exactly - about proper goalkeeper technique.

In 2015 I started with different international coaching projects - camps for goalkeepers and educations about goalkeeping for coaches.


From 2015 until 2020 I have coached goalkeepers and educated coaches about goalkeeping in 15 different countries, while closely cooperating with some of the biggest names in handball.

I have coached all age categories, from 9 years old until senior level, both male and female goalkeepers.

Until this day, I have never stopped learning more, exploring more, understanding more and getting more coaching inspiration from different sports and different training methodologies.

Over the years it was very evident and noticeable the need for providing additional help in training for young goalkeepers in many different countries.

On my coaching quest around the world, I've met a lot of amazing goalkeepers and I have learned so much from all of them!

I have devoted majority of my life to find and learn different ways to inspire the goalkeepers that I work with to see that Bright Light within themselves that I see. So one of the most common feedbacks that I am getting is "Thank you for believing in me so much that I also started believing in  myself!", "Thank you for listening and hearing what I wanted to express.", "Thank you for helping me realize that I already have everything that I need to succeed inside of me."

Alongside this beautiful Journey of teaching and coaching goalkeepers, I have never stopped LEARNING from all of them and I have never stopped having endless amounts of fun!

The pandemic has slowed down and disabled many of our interantional projects in many different countries, but this is not where we have to stop! We were all patiently waiting when this weird situation will end, but since it's not yet changing, then we can change our approach! :)This is why I have created this online group coaching program for goalkeepers! So that we could all meet, learn, interact and keep improving!

Kari Aalvik Grimsbø (Norway)

"Vanja is a very passionate coach with a good eye for details. She puts a lot of energy into creating specific trainings with variations, based on the desire to develop and learn."

Jan Erik Wiedemann (Norway)

"I have had the pleasure of working with Vanja on several occasions and would not hesitate to recommend her to everyone I know.

Her courses uphold the highest standards of quality. The courses are very well build up from a learning perspective. They are also fun and exciting, much due to Vanja's charismatic and outgoing personality.

If you want world class quality AND a fun time, I would definitely recommend Vanjas courses!"

Nichlas Riise (Denmark)

"Vanja is the most dedicated and brilliant coach I have met on my way. Goalkeeper nerd, whose enthusiasm affect anyone on the floor, to be the best of themselves."

Klaus Berghoffer (Germany) 

"Vanja gave us the special training days for goalkeepers that brought our keepers in the club and from far away. In a very entertaining and intense way keepers get the basics combined with special drills.

They loved the hand/eye coordination drills Vanja taught them and still do them for warm up and stretching.
As an outsider and with a special approach, Vanja found abilities in keepers which they have not known about. Everyone took special motivation, skills and friendships home. If we could, we would make camps with Vanja every month."

Thomas Moeglin (denmark)

"I am so lucky that I have worked with Vanja a few times.
Vanja is a coach "on the top shelf" in my opinion.
Vanja is extremely good technically and easy to learn from.
She is always well prepared and she is constantly evolving.
Vanja is constantly trying to use the new technology to improve our goalkeepers."
