Soccer-Book: The Complete Keeper
Authors: Peter Greiber, Robert Freis
The Complete Keeper
The Complete Keeper is a practical goalkeeper training handbook that truly delivers: Instead of bogging down with long-winded discussions of theory, it has more than 240 clearly illustrated exercises and practice games which provide virtually infinite variations for effective youth goalkeeper training. It is a rich resource for soccer coaches who know that goalkeeper training must be taken just as seriously as field player training. The book includes descriptions of basic goalkeeping techniques, in detail and with plenty of photos. Special attention is paid to the tactical aspects of the position and all bases are covered, from elements of training to the little things that make the difference between good goalkeeping and great goalkeeping. Although this book is primarily intended for coaches of youth soccer teams, the vast majority of the exercises are appropriate for adults as well.
