Football/soccer is not a straight line sport like alot of athletics although athletics drills can help alot. Also try alternating light runs into sprints. To help you get off the matk quicker. And suicude runs as you have to turn and adjust your body. Try doing these with a ball to help your dribbling as dribbling with a ball for a while will strengthen your legs to the point where dribbling with a ball is second nature.this will also help your first touch and close control. Im not a running expert :) but footie/soccer is my passion. Good luck;)

Stairs, high knees, and believe it or not doing 1 legged squats, bicep curls and shoulder "Arnold" presses while standing on one leg on the stability 1/2 ball.... Builds all those stabilizer muscles around your knees and ankles to give you quick balanced feet!

Hey lexie I'm a keeper and I can give you many tips and drills that can help you. As for workouts, don't limit yourself to just lower body workouts but include your entire body. I do bench presses, overhead presses with dumbbells, bent over rows with a bar or dumbbell, tricep dips, crunches and bicycle crunches. Best leg workouts I do is lunges, squats and calf raises and leg extensions. You'll see the benefits of calf raises and leg extensions in your vertical leap which is essential. One of my favorite keeper exercise is with a partner. Have him toss...

Have you heard of the karaoke/grapevine drill? If not you can look up a video of it. It helps with foot coordination.

If you arent planning on becomming a keeper i woudnt try to learn it haha. Whole other ballgame :-). If you want to train your technique and ball handling try to find wiel coerver dvd's. This will also help you with footwork and specially with the ball.

I have played all positions besides forward an goalie . I'm working on forward & goalie . I good feet work but there is always room for improvement. Thanks for the help

This does not make sense at all? Why would you want to train forward and keeper? Everyone has an natural position which fits him best. That is kind of pretty clear really fast hehe. If i were you i would train alot more on balcontrol than anything else

I not trying to become outstanding in every position . I'm left wing an that's my position . I play travel an school an nobody will step up to goalie so I'm taking private goalie lessons on side since no else will . I do want to learn them .

Lexie. I applaud you for training to pkay goalkeeper. Keep this is mind. A special player can play just about anywhere on the pitch. If you get the chance to play semi-pro/ professional you will find out quickly which position suits your attributes best.

Im having the same issue but im mainly want to work on my left foot

12 Jun
Yeah I'm not great with left foot either that's what I want my feet work to help .

Footwork wont help with your left foot. Playing ball with your left foot is the only thing that will help that problem

Try doing kickups(keepy-ups). Dribbling with your weak foot. Side foot passes. And shooting with the laces.

To play goalie you can't be afraid to get kicked in the face or head. Most likely it will happen.

That's why they say goalkeepers are lunatics
