Just4keepers Netherlands

Recently I was invited to the Netherlands which is run by the director of J4K Holland Marcel Loer
Marcel Ran a fantastic Goalkeeper course where 40 goalkeeper students where in attendance. This was held in one of the most beautiful places I have visited, Groningen, North Holland. The venue was excellent and the goalkeeper students where a credit to their parents and to Marcel who ran one of the best goalkeeper courses I have attended.

 Myself far left and Marcel far right with the J4K students of Groningen, Netherlands.

This was a nice touch from Marcel. He had the English flag where J4K began over a decade ago and the Dutch flag. Marcel had a Goalkeeper diving from the English flag to the Dutch, as a sign that J4K is now very much in Holland.

This was one of the best goalkeeping experiences I had

Do not let people play behind your goal:

I use to hate this when I played as a youngsetr

You are trying to concentrate on your game while playing and you have local kids using the back of your goal for their goal!

This can be VERY off putting!

Especially when they kick their ball on the pitch and they ask you to kick it back. If you have watched my videos on the importance of concentrating, you will understand that a little lapse of concentration for a keeper can result in a goal!!!

So what do you do?

It’s not worth you arguing with them and asking them to move (because some will not move). Instead pre-warn your manager, coach or parent. Explain what you have read here and that you want NOBODY playing behind your goal.

If you can educate others that is not cool these guys using your goal as their goal when you play, hopefully these local kids will get moved on swiftly, allowing you to focus 100% on what you are doing!

I hope this tip helps?
