Speed is extremely important for goalkeeping. The ability to command your penalty box and to get to balls before your opponent is vital.
In a recent session, I incorporated different elements of the Goalkeeper HQ topics that required speed. These included
- Speed of distribution
- Speed to get to the ball first
- Speed moving across the goal and up/down the line to make saves.
Test how ready you are to start the season with these five speed tests and the target time as set by UNH Women’s Soccer team.
