Advice to Young Keepers: Preparation doesn't end after practice! Watch as much soccer as you can. Take advantage of keeper training and use your keeper coach as one of your tools to reach your goals.
Pre-Game Rituals?: I have to touch the crossbars 3 times each post before each game.
Training Advice: Get as many touches with your hands in keeper training as a midfielder does passes. Take opportunities to play on the field will help with your touch and timing as a keeper. Put yourself mentally in game mode during your practices.
What makes a good indoor keeper?: Understanding angles-reading the players in front of you (the opposition and your own players tendencies) great with decisions with feet/ distribution and a great communicator.
