The modern game is played at an extremly fast pace. in order for a goalkeeper to
have success he must do as much as he can before the ball ever leaves the opponents
foot. At the highest levels of the game, every fraction of a second counts.
This means the goalkeeper must be positioned correctly. That not only means standing
in the right place on the field, the goalkeeper must also be in the correct stance
or `Ready Position`.
There are four distinct scenarios that the goalkeeper may be faced with during the
course of a game. Each scenario requires a different `Ready Position`in order to
achieve maximum efficiency.
À solid foundation for success will be achieved once the goalkeeper is able to identify
these scenarios and apply the correct `Ready Position`accordingly.
