We were learning all the basics of goalkeeper’s technique, as they are the base for development and success of every goalkeeper.

Also at the camp we were working on:

  • movement in basic stance
  • reactions on high, middle and low shots from the basic stance
  • specifics of the goalie save reaction on 6m and 9m shots
  • coordination
  • exercises for improving the feeling of spatial awareness
  • hip flexor mobility
  • balance
  • exercises based on motion to enhance mental capabilities-crossing the body’s mid-line
  • speed of reaction
  • eye-hand coordination
  •  exercises for improving reflexes and flexibility

The quality of the Goalie Camp is recognized by a few sponsors who have been loyal last year and also this year.

And they are:

And this year we have got new friend/sponsor of our camp and that is Errea.
