The Love of Goalkeeping (Paperback)
What is common to goalkeepers in all sports?
This is not a coaching manual full of exercises in a particular sport nor a biography made of stories and goalkeeping anecdotes. Unlike most books about goalkeeping, it is an exploration of many unique physical, mental and developmental demands and characteristics of goalkeeping that seem to consistently match across sports with a goalkeeper.
The book combines the author's own experience, research across various fields, survey responses and conversations with over one hundred goalkeepers, coaches and families of goalkeepers across many sports, countries, genders, ages and expertise levels.
The Love of Goalkeeping aims to introduce the reader to the world of goalkeeping and bring together all who care about goalkeepers across sports to see how we can learn from and help each other in doing what we love.
