Olympic Champion Maddie Hinch is launching her own goalkeeping camps today under the MH1 brand and Crazy Catch are delighted to be partnering with the events, hosted at Oaklands College (29,30,31st July).
Crazy Catch have been linked with Hinch for the last couple of years, producing various inspirational training videos including in the run up to Rio with fellow FIH goalkeeper of the year David Harte and the brilliant Self Pass. Both Maddie and David use Crazy Catch in their training sessions to develop agility, reactions and to add fun and variety to their sessions. As part of our sponsorship of the MH1 camps, Crazy Catch will be used extensively whilst there will also be a special goalkeeping Facebook live on Monday at 2:10pm where fans can ask questions about Maddie’s training regime, goalkeeping tips, Crazy Catch drill suggestions and advice on making it to the top.
On launching the camps, Maddie Hinch said: “I wanted to create a hockey camp with a sole focus on goalkeeping skills. I hope that this is just the beginning of developing a recognised and leading brand of goalkeeping courses that can be rolled out across the country. I want all ages and abilities to have the opportunity to learn and develop goalkeeping skills with some of the top coaches in the country. For me, seeing people pick up a stick and want to participate in hockey makes everything I do worthwhile.”
From Crazy Catch Marketing Manger Kate Costin said ” We are delighted to support Maddie’s first venture into coaching. Crazy Catch is used by many of the world’s top hockey players and teams to improve their skills with its unique INSANE netting making training fun and challenging so its great to bring this experience to the MH1 camps whilst our facebook live session will allow those hockey fans who were unable to attend, still to get involved.
Follow us on social media for photos and actions from the camps and also to tune into the Facebook Live. Post your questions in advance and the best ones will be answered by Maddie on Monday…
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.
Omari is part of the soccer skills group “The Tekk Squad” which also includes England women’s player Gemma Davison and trick shot guru Coytie and we are pleased to say he is a big Crazy Catch fan and uses the product regularly to develop his first touch and skills. “If you keep training, you improve” says Omari. Check out his new video with Crazy Catch as part of the Train for the game series produced by Sports on Screen.
