Hello everyone, today we share the importance of goalkeepers putting their bodies behind the ball, hope you like them!
When we talk about technology, we are talking about the goalkeeper’s ability to perform a certain action. However, this ability is often restricted by different aspects. The most important of these is physical fitness. Possessing good perception-motor ability is the basis for performing actions.
In the training phase, with the ball and without the ball, the perception of movement is trained separately. We also hope that the goalkeeper can better control his body. This in turn facilitates the development of specific technologies. But sometimes we use various tricks to unconsciously distort the mission goal, resulting in the goal we pursue is not achieved. In fact, simplicity is a virtue, especially in the formation stage of technology.
On the other hand, when we talk about the practical phases, we think that "technical excellence" lies in them. It may be that way, or it may not be that way. Because this kind of "excellence" in the adult stage will basically depend on basic skills. We see excellent goalkeeper skills getting better and better, which is largely due to the continuous accumulation of experience. Don't forget that even at these stages, the work of perception is very important. It may be a bit complicated to polish capacity in 30 years. However, we should not forget the spiritual aspect. The goalkeeper gets this kind of "spark" to generate an extra "motivation" that encourages him to try more things.
Next, we recommend that you analyze the movement of the video before continuing.
Of course, the first thing I thought of was: This is really a mistake! But as goalkeeper coaches, we will try our best to maximize the game.
The goalkeeper correctly positioned before the corner kick. Finding that he can't directly interfere with the ball, he enters the goal line correctly, giving himself enough space to ensure that he can react if he must intervene. The central defender was sober-minded and tried to quickly end the opponent's attack. Here, the goalkeeper must make simple adjustments. In this case, he reduced one or two steps to correct his position, which was perfect. Up to this moment, everything is correct. however:
From a priori point of view, it seems not. Because his body position will not change due to the direction of the ball. However, although they are not "disturbing", they do make people uncomfortable. Of course, they affected his ability to react to some extent.
The movement of the ball seems to be open, rebounding, just when receiving the ball, will it make the situation more difficult?
We think so. Because the hitting surface is the inner instep, the ball always tends to "draw" at the last minute, making the goalkeeper's actions more difficult, and "damm" rebounds, which is extremely harmful.
Figure 1-The body is not placed behind the ball
Let us look at their basic position at the moment of hitting. The heel is almost in full contact with the ground. What makes the situation difficult is that at that distance, no fine-tuning was made before and the body was placed behind the ball. In addition, his posture is not completely balanced. In the photo, we can see that he has an inertia to the left. What causes your feet to not be completely parallel in action?
Figure 2-Not fully balanced
The first thing we must understand is that mistakes are the ladder of progress. It gives players opportunities to improve. But for us coaches, it makes us feel uneasy. This worry reminds us of him: What can I do? How can I deal with this situation/error/failure? etc.
No one knows his performance better than the goalkeeper. This is not to simply say that he is done, and then repeat the error again and again. Empathize first, and then provide tools for improvement.
We have discussed conversation as a major tool, and now we will discuss some very effective exercises to improve this type of action. In order to put the body behind the ball, we need a quick adjustment/displacement/frequency. So when the root of the problem is this, perceptual movement exercises are the most appropriate way to improve technical movements.
Figure 3-Training example
We think an important methodological guiding principle that needs to be remembered is that we use extra material very carefully when designing tasks. Because sometimes we distort the practice without realizing it and fail to solve the root of the problem. If the problem is that it is difficult for our goalkeeper to put his body behind the ball, perhaps the following materials + separate technical actions are the best task until gradually improved.
During training, we must respect the law and allow the goalkeeper time to put his body behind the ball. But sometimes, our shot is not perfect, and the goalkeeper decides to use a side block or other means to stop it, which is also effective, because uncertainty is the basic characteristic of the game.
That's all for today's content. For more exciting football teaching, please continue to pay attention to the road of football!
