At Goalkeeper HQ, we have always believed that there is a process in which the path to become a great goalkeeper needs to be followed. This path requires being as consistent as you can in each of the Goalkeeper HQ Core Competencies.
It has always been the aim to provide education on why each competency is needed, the knowledge of how to do each competency correctly, and drills in which to practice and improve in that particular part of the game.
With the current situation of isolation, and the demand for goalkeepers to do work at home, we have adapted the original idea to create do at home drills in minimal space with just the goalkeeper or with one person serving.
