Are You Too Small To Become A Professional Goalkeeper
Over the many years of coaching goalkeepers, One of the most commonly asked questions goalkeepers (actually this question comes 90% of the time from parents of the goalkeeper.) and that is..
I (or my child) is not going to be over 6ft, what are (their chances) of becoming a professional goalkeeper?
It always pains us when we hear this question, because we can hear the desperation, doubts BUT hope in the goalkeepers (and parents) question, looking for a slimmer of hope in my answer.
Now I am a firm believer, if a goalkeeper is good enough, they are big enough depending on their height, but I have to be honest and state it will be more of a challenge for a goalkeeper who is going to be under 6ft tall.
But there are things you can do as a goalkeeper, to stack the odds in your favour… but rather than write a big long essay, instead watch the quick video below.
We hope this helps.
