Organized by FA Academy
Dubai / Wednesday, November 8th, 2017: the FA Academy Goalkeepers Instructors (D) Course was successfully concluded yesterday where 11 participants have taken part. It was run from 5 to 7 November under supervision of AFC Instructor Dr. Jasem Mohamed Al Harbi.
The practical and theoretical sessions have reflected that specialized goalkeeper coaching must not exceed 30% in the week. It must be relied on fun and suspense, and goalkeepers must take part in the team training, taking into account that they should not reach exhaustion. The goalkeeper must master the basic skills, including good positioning, holding the ball, proper ball save and pass the ball to teammates with hands and feet.
The course highlighted the plans applied during the match in respect to goalkeeping in defensive and attacking situations; as well as psychological preparations, defenses situations during corner kicks, free kicks cross balls, throw-in and penalty kicks.
