goalkeepers of hand ball

Why refuse Most young to be handball goalkeepers and what is the way to remedy the situation

A goalkeeper is a spelcial player!!
When you try to approach this post as being a special position in the team you moght get some volunteers to act as goalkeepers.
First of all EVERY PLAYER has to be a goalkeeper once. At an early age no player has a specialized position. Only from the age of 12-15 players choose or are chosen for a special position in the field. So before this age everybody has to play as a goalkeeper in turns. This is to show and to let players feel how the role of a goalkeeper is. When changing the goalkeeper every match or even every half time, there will be a player who wants to be in the goal after all.

Once chosen as a goalkeeper train him/her in aspecial way with the special drills in the database. In this way the new goalkeeper will be trained for the special skills which are needed to be a goalkeeper.

When shooting at the goal tell players to shoot in such a way that they can also help their own goalkeeper to get better. In warming up sessions for the keepr shoot as carefully as possible for example.
In more free drills make players shoot with a special technique or at a certain position in the goal (eg left top corner) so that the keeper has a better chance to stop the shots.

So train your special player in a special way and treat him/her as such!
