During Last week’s Capital District Youth Soccer League Coaches’ Workshop, four aspiring goalkeepers from the J4K-Capital District New York training program were treated to a special event!
Nationally renown soccer coach, Deb Raber (MCLA Women’s Head Coach, NSCAA National Staff Coach) lead a demonstration training session on footwork and handling. These four goalkeepers were treated to a great session and some outstanding goalkeeping coaching points from Coach Raber. Among all of the quality training these kids received during the hour long session, Coach Raber also shared the following tips:
Never stop training on your footwork!
Communicate loud and clear, yell “Keeper, not Keep”!
Remember that it is 11 v 11 not 1 v 11. Delegate ownership to your teammates!
