Germany is arguably the top country in the world for it’s production of talented goalkeepers. In Germany, goalkeepers are some of the fittest, smartest and most athletic players on the field. In some cases, Germany has even made its keeper the captain of the national team as was the case with one of Germany’s and the word’s greatest keepers of all time, Oliver Kahn. The goalkeeper position is of critical importance to the success of a team, not only as the tender of the goal but also to lead and command the team.
Goalkeeper Training with Pro IFX 30 Day and Youth Summer IFX Germany Programs
As a part of our Pro IFX 30 Day July program and our Youth Summer IFX Germany program in August, IFX offers specific goalie training as a part of the program. During morning IFX training sessions, IFX goalkeepers are trained by a professional German goalkeeper trainer using proven modern German goalkeeper methods used by professional clubs as well as the Deutscher Fussball Bund’s Stützpunkt system, which is the German Football National Team’s training system for youth and their senior men’s national team. Goalie drills focus on improvement of technique, agility, reaction, foot speed, jumping, strength, endurance, and foot skills.
Not only do IFX players enjoy goalkeeper training within the IFX morning training sessions, but also have the opportunity to experience training within an actual German club team. Players are placed to train several times per week with a German club, where they are integrated into the club’s normal training activities which generally includes various drills as well as small sides games and occasionally full field scrimmages. In some cases, German clubs also have their own specific goalkeeper training sessions in which IFX goalie’s may take part.
