Social Development

 Worcester Goalkeeper Academy Social Development 

Social Development is very important for the development of the keeper, not just for a match of football, but also in outside of football and the Academy as it can also be important for Psychological Development as it can build confidence.

Such development includes:

  • Communication skills – communicating (instructions) with the team and to coaches or parents
  • Listening and understanding – listening to and understanding of instructions (coach-ability)
  • Team work – integrating and working with the team and those around them (friends and colleagues)
  • Health and well-being – further to Physical Development, this includes happiness and enjoyment of the game

A goalkeeper with great social skills is a better one as they are more involved and happier!
