Continual Development of Goalkeepers: Physical Development

Physical Development is not just about Fitness as it also incorporates the other Physical needs of a Goalkeeper to prepare them physically for a game including:

  • Reactions;
  • Speed, Agility and Quickness (SAQ or ‘Fast-Feet’);
  • Movement;
  • Balance; and
  • Stamina.

Physical Development can be Assessed in stand alone exercises or whilst performing Technical practical sessions and assessments (as previously discussed in this blog).

However Physical Development must also include those important areas sometimes overlooked or neglected:

  • Warm up and Cool Down; and
  • Health and Well-Being (including prevention and treatment of injuries).
