Over my many years coaching goalkeepers, from when I voluntary coached the young goalkeepers at the professional clubs I played for over a 10-year period, or coaching the 1000s of goalkeepers over the past 20 years running Just4keepers…
One of the most common questions I have been asked by 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 me when I hear this question, because I 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.
I hope this helps.
Start Your Own Goalkeeper Coaching Schools
If you have your own goalkeeper coaching business, I am going to guess that you are probably not earning the income you believe you deserve and there is competition eating into your business?
I have been helping goalkeeper coaches build big goalkeeper coaching businesses for 20 years now, and the reason why 98% of goalkeeper coaches struggle is that they put their marketing skills behind their goalkeeper coaching abilities. They think by being a great goalkeeper coach and having the correct qualifications is the key to success.. however, if you think like this as a goalkeeper coach, you could not be thinking further away from the truth….
It all about marketing!
You know you are doing something right when you get messages like the one below. I am also really honoured that a young goalkeeper has worn the J4K gloves since the age of 5 years old.
Two amazing pictures of young Max as he has grown with Just4keepers.
Also thanks to Max's dad (luke) for his kind words.
'Just want to say J4k seem to be "THE ONLY" GK specialist services who actually care not only about the GK's but about good quality gear too.
My son has been using your gear since the age of 5 he's 11 now and looks forward to many more years with J4k.'
