GOALKEEPER PRINCIPLES

1. BE STILL WHEN THE BALL IS STRUCK

2. BE OFF YOUR GOAL LINE BUT NOT TOO FAR SO YOU CAN GET CHIPPED

3. REACT TO THE BALL.. DONT ANTICIPATE SHOT.

4. ATTACK THE BALL WHEN DIVING IN A FORWARD DIVE MOVEMENT TO CUT ANGLE

5. LEAD WITH YOUR HANDS WHEN DIVING AT THE BALL

6. IF YOU CAN, ANTICIPATE A THROUGH BALL

7. WHEN RETREATING, GO BACK AND ACROSS TO COVER THE NEAR POST... ENCOURAGE SHOT AT FAR POST

8. WHEN DEALING WITH ONCOMING ATTACKER, BE BRAVE AND STAY AS BIG AS POSSIBLE.
