In episode 183 Julia West, Goalkeeper Coack and Tutor of Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Worcester, joins us.
Specifically Julia will be looking at:
- Why goalkeepers are unique
- How goalkeepers differ between sports
- How goalkeepers in football can improve their physical performance
"Dr Julia West is a goalkeeper coach and a tutor in Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Worcester. Julia is proud to have played for England Universities and achieved a high level of performance in the women’s game. This experience has laid the foundation for Julia’s coaching interest in all things goalkeeping. Early on, Julia realised there was little information specifically relating to the goalkeeper, their performance or their training. Many outfield coaches have bemoaned the lack of literature or guidance around coaching the goalkeeper and this has lead to a lack of specific goalkeeper coaching in many clubs. Therefore, through her coaching, research and dissemination, Julia has set out to redress this with a ‘something is better than nothing’ philosophy. However, if you are going to do ‘something’, then you might as well do a goalkeeper specific something."
