Understand the equipment they need to succeed.
The main thing to know about here is goalkeeper gloves. Generally, you get what you pay for and cheap gloves lacking important features (such as finger protection) can actually hold a player back and can cost more in the long run because they tend to not be as durable as higher end gloves. Here at Renegade GK, we take all of this into account and provide a glove that has full safety features as well as great durability and excellent grip on the ball. All of these are things that can really make a difference in the heat of the match.
The bottom line here is that goalkeepers receive plenty of criticism over their careers without having the added pressure from their coaches/parents. Your aim is to be as supportive as possible and help feed the flame of passion and self-confidence – this is what will make the real difference.
