For some reason, the vast majority of the keepers who show up for my training sessions are girls. Many of them are turning into extremely high-quality players (you know who you are) who are growing into the physical and mental demands of the position. To show those players where they can go, and what they can achieve, I have compiled a few videos of female keepers of all ages. All these girls can really bring it – check them out after the jump.
Here are some talented keepers going through some drills – note the footwork and intensity they bring to training. They are always bouncing…always on their toes…giving 100% on every save.
This is a longish compilation of highlights from Devon Kerr, who is (was) a pretty outstanding U14 keeper.
Here is an unnamed high school keeper – note her positioning and reactions on the corner kicks as well as her anticipation on through balls…really top notch.
…and I can’t get away without posting some Hope Solo.
