The main goal of the camp is to show young goalkeepers the main roles and tasks of a goalkeeper in specific situations of a football game. The right technical and tactical work of a goalkeeper makes it possible to play at the highest quality at all times, during defense and attack. In camp, young goalkeepers will work on their technique-tactic and with an additional analysis of their practices point out the most important elements and their performance which are needed for their growth as a contemporary goalkeeper.
With our experience and education, which we have successfully completed, the said techniques and tactics are being explained into detail during the analysis and the individual work in camp. All that is projected through work with our goalkeepers on the court. With the goalkeepers who are willing to train according to our plan, we also plan additional individual work after the camp so that through our advice and practices we can influence on their further growth even more. We are open to collaborating with the coaches of the goalkeepers as well.
The work in camp is adapted to all ages and to the technical and tactical training. With that taken into consideration, we are forming groups of goalkeepers that can be changed throughout the training period according to the goalkeepers needs. That way we are leaning towards the highest quality work of each group.
