Goalkeeping Psychology Tips: How to Improve Your Focus

Many goalkeepers can get caught out with how they focus their attention.

In this video I share with you 3 tips for goalkeepers so that you can put behind you mistakes and improve your focus.

  1. Visualise being the calm, composed goalkeeper and how you will respond to difficulties ahead of time.
  2. Be your inner goalkeeper coach, encouraging yourself no matter what.
  3. Focus on the present moment by placing your attention in your body during stoppages in play.
