'Video Coaching Sessions'

'Defending the goal' by Eric Steele

Ex Man Utd and Man City Goalkeeper Coach, Eric Steele, delivers a masterclass session, with the session uniquely designed to put the Goalkeeper’s into ‘game-like’ scenarios in which they must recognise the triggers and then make decisions on whether they should smother/block the ball from close distance or position themselves for a shot from further distance.
With a variety of exercises, the emphasis is placed on the decision making process. The Goalkeepers are put into scenarios which will make them consider the ‘WHEN and WHY’, when choosing their action.

Our GkNexus Members were given access to an incredible presentation, created by Eric Steele, as he shared the contrasts in how he prepared some of the best Goalkeepers he has worked with, including David De gea, Joe Hart, Peter Schmeichel and Edwin Van der Sar.

What our Members are saying...

“GkNexus is simply the best Goalkeeping platform out there. I am dedicated to developing myself as a Coach and in return, develop my young Goalkeepers, and being able to learn from the very best in the business at such a low cost, is a no brainer for me.” from Brian McLaughlin.

I used to spend hours every week, searching the internet for new session ideas to work on with my Goalkeepers. Now, I simply login to my GkNexus account and get sessions from the BEST Coaches in the game. I mean, with Eric Steele, how often do you get to watch a coach in action who has worked with David De Gea, Edwin Van der Saar and Peter Schmeichel, to name a few. I LOVE it!” from James Williams.

“I find the Members area an essential tool in my own coaching bag, the session plans you provide are very detailed and not only easy to follow but easy to adapt to men’s senior level – our first team, reserve team & U18 keepers at Hythe & Dibden FC really get to grips with the sessions and can easily verbalise back to me what the key focus area of the session is around” from Graeme Harrison.
