Something we focus a lot on here at Just4Keepers is our diving technique. We believe that it is so important to work from the ground up to really perfect that falling technique. Especially when just getting back into training after a lay-off or when the ground is rock solid!
This is important work for beginners and young keepers, or even for more advanced keepers who need to brush up on their technique before facing more realistic shots.
We don’t move our students onto advanced footwork and diving drills until their technique is sound. Far too often, young keepers are thrown into advanced drills before they’re comfortable with their technique and their bad habits become reinforced.
Form is everything.
