Goalkeeper reaction training session with Real Madrid & Crazy Catch

Real Madrid is one of the world’s biggest football clubs and they along with top goalkeeping coach Luis Llopis, have been using Crazy Catch for a couple of years now. Watch this new video of a reaction session featuring Keylor Navas, Kiko Casilla and Ryan Yanez Alabart.

This session uses the Crazy Catch Wildchild Double Trouble as well as a mixture of footballs and smaller tennis balls. Using smaller balls develops quicker reflexes and also aids visual performance (plus going back to using footballs then makes these balls much easier to save). The unique thing about the Crazy Catch is its INSANE rebound so the tennis ball comes off the net very erratically pushing you to the limit and making for a very intensive session. Luis also sometimes pushes the net as the ball impacts to create more pace and unpredictability for these elite keepers. Try some of these ideas in your next session …

Crazy Catch is the original and best rebound net for football (or Soccer) training … Chose from the Double Trouble range; these have large netting on one side, so it’s INSANE even with a football (grey side in image above), then small netting on the front. The Ultimate Rebound Net is available from leading football retailers including Pro Direct Soccer.

With the Premier League trophy heading to Leicester this summer, it will also be making a pit-stop in Birmingham for the Sports Show at The Premier League activation zone, where guests will be able to get their hands on one of the most iconic trophies in sport. Young people attending the event will receive a motivational dressing room experience, warm-up and skills coaching from Premier League club coaches and get a real flavour of what the Premier League is all about: passion, fun and enjoying football.

Premier League Managing Director, Richard Masters, said “Premier League clubs have a fantastic track record of using the power of football to inspire young people to play sport in communities and schools across the country. The Sports Show provides us with a great platform to replicate this for thousands of young people at one event, and put on fun and engaging activities that get them playing football, and hopefully developing a sporting habit for life.”
The European Tour have also committed to the Sports Show with a bespoke golf zone, where kids will receive expert PGA tuition including video capture of your swing, a series of challenges from the longest putt, nearest the pin simulation and a bunker challenge. Additionally, ahead of this year’s Ryder Cup at the Hazeltine National Golf Course, the prestigious Ryder Cup will also be on show and there will be a 9 hole course for all the family to enjoy.

Judy Murray will be bringing her very own tennis action to the show with her Miss-Hits and Tennis on the Road programmes, supported by the Lawn Tennis Association. Miss-Hits is designed to make tennis more enjoyable for young girls, and provide a fun and interactive environment for girls to be introduced to tennis, using a combination of dance, magic symbols, specialised equipment and music. Tennis on the Road aims to inspire the next generation and give more adults and children the chance to get involved in tennis.

Judy Murray said: I’m delighted to be bringing my Miss-Hits and Tennis on the Road programmes to the Sports Show to help give families from in and around Birmingham the chance to try tennis. It’s so important to have fun whilst playing any sport and this is the perfect platform to help demonstrate this”.

EXTREME will be bringing jaw dropping live entertainment and putting on professionally led have a go sessions with top skateboarding, BMX, mountain bike, freestyle Moto-X and slacklining pro’s and athletes. The British Marine and the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) will be at the show encouraging visitors to get on the water.

Tim Hunt, Head of Marketing for the European Tour added “We are constantly looking at new ways to engage with a sports-interested audience in the UK and our involvement with the Sports Show is something we are very excited about. We will be showcasing some of our own key events coming up later in the year as well as joining forces with the PGA, giving families the chance to try out a range of skills and find out more about getting into golf.”

Creating the world’s biggest sports playground for kids and adults alike, the event will be the first ever family Sports Show of its kind and has been created to inspire families to play sport, love sport and live sport; importantly helping kids to discover their sporting passions that can continue long after the event.
