The importance of steps of progression in coaching


The movement for a high shot save (that you can see in video below) looks fairly simple and smooth when done by a goalkeeper that is already skilled and able to make it properly. But when you are trying to teach a young goalkeeper that same movement , it can become complicated and overwhelming with trying to coordinate hand and legs movements at the same time.

There are certain things and proper steps of progression that can help you and that you need to consider while working on this (and any other save movement) with young goalkeepers.

If you know the structure of proper steps of progression, it becomes much more easy for you as a coach to organize exercises and time with your goalkeepers to help them with improving their skills. Also, more importantly, it becomes easier for you to recognize where and when you should stop in progression, and if needed make a regression.

In the last 10 years I have seen over thousand of young goalkeepers, that I worked with all over the world, improve and learn so fast with the coaching methodology I have developed and all the exercises I have implemented.



I am happy to inform you that I will be sharing everything about my coaching methodology and everything about the proper progression steps for saves of high, middle and low shots from 9 meters (and much more!) in my Level 1 online course for handball coaches.

If you want to join some of the groups that start soon, and exchange ideas and experiences with a group of coaches interested in the same topics, you can apply for our next Level 1 online course for coaches! To check next available dates for Level 1, please follow this link.

I am looking forward to meeting you in some of my next groups of the Level 1 online course! 🙂
