Top Tips For Spartans Goalie From England's Number One Keeper

Ladies 1’s Goal Keeper Lauren Burnard has taken part in a Keepers training session, led by Team GB’s Goal Keeper, Maddie Hinch.

The England Hockey Keeper and European Gold Medallist put a dozen women through their paces at a skills coaching session, in Kent. Attendees were given the chance to learn directly from Maddie, who shared her preferred, practised and expert techniques for defending the goal.

The session which focused on diving, showed Lauren smarter and faster ways of throwing herself at the ball, recovery of the standing position and how to avoid losing cover of the ball. Group work and drills gave Maddie the chance to assess Lauren’s efforts and then to feedback directly to her on performance and improvements.

Lauren was impressed by Maddie’s relaxed coaching style and session structure, learning some worthwhile techniques which will benefit the Ladies’ 1’s pursuit of promotion across the season.

‘A very useful hour and a half of intensive diving, I feel like I’ve gained a lot more confidence to be able to dive all over the place and am looking forward to returning for the second session.’

Maddie Hinch currently plays for England and Great Britain's Women’s National hockey team and regularly leads coaching sessions, for more information see: https://twitter.com/MaddieHinch?lang=en-gb
