Goalkeepers need to be in great shape and prepared to defend every inch of the net behind them during the course of a long game. That means practices have to be productive to prepare you for game day.
The best goalkeepers do more than just stop shots. Once the goalkeeper has the soccer ball, he or she becomes an attacking player. Just like any attacking player, the keeper wants to move the ball towards the other goal in possession if possible. If a keeper wants to learn how to throw or punt or dropkick the ball better or more accurately, high repetition is required.
This is a great workout that can really help you improve.
