CONNECTION OF TESTING RESULTS AND GOALKEEPING PERFORMANCE

25/06/2022

The relationship between test results, ie skill levels, and goalkeeping performance should be two-way.

The level of ability should be good for successfully performing goalkeeping movements.

In order not to deteriorate the health of the goalkeeper, goalkeeping movements should be performed well.

When these two prerequisites are met, then Marko has the opportunity to realize his talent in the game.

The goal is to create the preconditions for Marko to stop the shot if he anticipates well where the ball might go or if he successfully tricked the shooter or if he cooperates well with the block.

If he does not have a sufficient level of ability or inaccurate goalkeeping technique, he will often receive goals, even though he did well in something of the above-mentioned.

It is important to understand that well-developed skills and learned goalkeeping techniques are not a guarantee but a prerequisite for a large number of saves,

Our experience shows that the connection between the test results and the efficient performance of the goalkeeping technique is direct.

On the other hand, the connection of poorer performance of goalkeeping movements with underdeveloped abilities increases with older age groups and we are always more cautious in this assessment.

The point is that young children have not yet mastered some goalkeeping movements enough, so it is wrong to conclude that they do not have good abilities by looking only at goalkeeping performance.

Aptitude testing is necessary for such conclusions.

FEAR OF THE BALL

FEAR OF THE BALL

All good goalies have only one talent in common:  They are not afraid of the ball. Whether Marko has a fear of a ball can be easily seen by the movements of their hands in defense: If he defends their face first during each shot, and only then move with their...
