Results: There was a strong compatibility of ratings of the intra-rater reliability – 1.00 (95% Cl 1.00-1.00) and the inter-rater reliability – 0.99 (95% CI 0.99-1.00), which proves the reliability of the proposed research tool.
Conclusions: The developed sheet allows the registration and evaluation of individual performance and cooperation in terms of goalkeeper’s game objectives pursued both in offence and defence.
