Continual Development of Goalkeepers: Psychologocial Development

Psychological Development coaching can be conducted through classroom teaching or during practical training sessions (Technical and Physical). With assessments being done in either of these coaching areas.

Psychological Development includes:

  • Confidence and Bravery;
  • Decision Making;
  • Reactions; and
  • Communication.

The Academy also encourages Keepers to produce ‘imagery scripts’ which not only show the keepers understanding of techniques learnt, but also as sits in imprinting the techniques in the mind. This has added and extra dimension to the Academy. These imagery scripts combined with those other Psychological Developments described further aid improvements made in the Goalkeeper’s Technical Development.
