Efficiency of goalkeeper training with Lights as a differentiated visual component.
The work of perception with its multiple variables. The system of lights at the service of the cognitive-decisional, technical-tactical and physical-conditional objective, but not, on the contrary.
Aspects that can be improved;
– The goalkeeper’s ability to differentiate moving elements (Opponent, ball, teammates, references…) and capture them with greater precision.
– The time it takes for the goalkeeper to recognize and process what is happening to offer a better and faster response.
– Peripheral perception to anticipate positions, directions of the ball, movements of the opponent… in order to modify behavior before it happens.
– The visual competence to discriminate, discern and choose what happens to the goalkeeper, paying attention to elements that are close, deep, wide and at different heights.
In short, an infinite field of variability in goalkeeper training that, through a continuous program in microcycles, can lead to improvement in all these variables.
We can choose a pro-active methodology, where the goalkeeper activates the color and has the difficulty of choosing the correct one, eliminating distractors. Being able to cross hands and feet as well as cross the possible answers of the game that appear.
Another way would be like in the video, a re-active methodology, where the goalkeeper perceives the color assigned to him and has to offer a technical-tactical response, with a complex cognitive process depending on the design of the task, whether more or less open.
The world of goalkeeper training is so passionate and exciting that it invites us to follow this process of continuous research and discovery.
At least, why not try it.
