The Art of Goalkeeping - Book from Hans Leitert.Which characteristics mark out the true professional between the posts? What should a young goalie keep in mind to successfully survive the competition? The seven principles of the masters unlock the secret!
Who does not fondly remember the brilliant feats of the goalkeeping legends Lew Jaschin, Gordon Banks, Peter Schmeichel or Dino Zoff? Are we not all spellbound when an Oliver Kahn or a Petr Cech gives his spectacular performances?
What distinguishes these artists in the goal from other players? What enables particularly them to react excellently while others do not? Why is it that some keepers fumble the ball regularly and others manage to maintain the highest standard? What makes the difference?
This book deals with the small detailed disparities between top keepers and average keepers. It is about the often so impalpable configuration that determines whether a ball hits the target or a big save is made. For successful and confident goalkeeping seven vital factors are of paramount importance: the seven principles of the masters – deciphered and defined for the first time. Not only are they simply put and understandable for everyone but they are also easy to apply to all game situations, for all age-groups, all classes all over the world.
The seven principles are:
- No. 1: Optimal positioning and distance
- No. 2: Balance
- No. 3: Ready in time
- No. 4: The correct beginning
- No. 5: Actively towards the ball
- No. 6: Courage
- No. 7: Controlled focus
Numerous explanations, illustrations, diagrams and training recommendations give every goalkeeper, trainer and parent a unique insight into the fascinating world of goalkeeping.
