GOALKEEPING

Goalkeeping courses teach players those additional vital skills such a handling, footwork and distribution which can be overlooked when training as part of a team. Our goalkeeping courses are specialised, and we work in smaller groups to enhance development and therefore fitness levels should be of a high standard. Goalkeepers train independently to our football academy programme but come together during session enabling players to put techniques into practice.

ADVANCED GOALKEEPING

Advanced goalkeeping courses work on the same basis as standard goalkeeping, but sessions are designed to meet the requirements of senior and advanced goalkeepers who require further technical detail incorporated into their training to aid progression and development. Advanced sessions are physically and technically challenging and we recommend that players be of a high standard of both fitness and ability. Goalkeepers who attend these sessions may have the opportunity to highly improve their skills. Advanced Goalkeeping courses available to boys and girls of an advanced level aged 12- 17 years old.
