Soccer Goalkeeping
By Phillips, Lincoln
Be the best at the toughest job in the game. Soccer Goalkeeping can teach you how. This first-of-its-kind book is broken into three parts: Understanding the Goalkeeper's Role, Goalkeeping Technique, and Goalkeeping Tactics. And no one is more qualified to write about all three than Lincoln Phillips, the world-renowned player and coach. From the basic starting position to the psychological aspects of goalkeeping, this all-encompassing book can help coaches and players alike. It's not just about stopping the ball, it's about leading the team in the attack, too. For too long goalkeeping has been treated as less important than the roles of the outfielders. But not any more. Soccer Goalkeeping blows all those outdated ideas off the field! About the Author Lincoln Phillips has enjoyed great success in soccer on youth, college, and professional levels. A native of Trinidad & Tobago, he was considered the leading goalkeeping in the West Indies during the '60s. He led the Trinidad & Tobago national team to a bronze medal in the Pan American Games in 1967. Phillips then moved on to an outstanding professional career in America as a player and coach, holding three records in the Guiness Book of Records for ten years. Phillips also coached the Howard University soccer team to a NCAA Division I Championship in 1974. He is a certified United States Soccer Federation "A" License coach and is a current staff member of the USSF National Coaching Schools. He also lectures internationally as a member of the FIFA board of coaches. As President of Lincoln Phillips Soccer School, Inc., he has touched the lives of thousands of young soccer players.
