Kansas Rush Soccer Club

Competitive Goalkeeping

Kansas Rush Soccer Club provides position-specific Goalkeeper Training throughout the Fall and Spring Seasons for our players.
It will be run by our Club's Director of Goalkeepers

Cost:  Free to current club competitive members.

All goalkeeping will be done based on the player's ability, not their age. We believe that it is important to train these players appropriately, and will not do activities that are too advanced for the player.

Please make sure each goalkeeper brings a ball and is dressed appropriately.

  1. Catching and handling the ball (becoming more familiar with the ball) and footwork (the key to the save).
  2. Collapse diving; How to position the hands and catch the ball, the correct body position when attacking the ball and the power that is necessary to make the save when diving.
  3. More catching and handling, however, distribution will also be incorporated such as: throwing (overhand, rolling, side armed) and kicking (punting and drop kicking).
  4. Power diving and shot stopping, even some angle play. This will be similar to collapse diving except the goalkeeper will be getting off the ground a bit more based on their level of play. An introduction to angle play will be presented to the goalkeepers.
  5. Dealing with crosses, both early and late. Timing is so important especially when under pressure and this will be our focus. Bending the run, proper catching, and organization of backs.
  6. More catching and handling, plus footwork (ladder training and banana hurdles for quickness and agility).
  7. Breakaways and shot stopping. Staying aggressive and building confidence to make the save.
  8. Last time to train for the season! Small sided games; team handball, goalkeeper wars, 3v3 games, etc. Tons of goalkeeper training!
