Event Details

Course Info:  

Our guest coaches are renowned for having worked with some of the best keepers to play the game – including Kasper Schmeichel and David De Gea.

Participants will be taught modern day Goalkeeping techniques from handling and catching to diving and possession distribution. The coaching syllabus will also develop the physical characteristics that make an effective Goalkeeper. 

Keepers will also understand and improve the psychological requirements to perform and improve through theory and practical sessions. 

The day will start with a welcome from GK Icon and an introduction to our guest coaches and the day ahead, you will then break out into smaller groups and attend three workshop based sessions looking at the theory of Goalkeeping and specific Goalkeeping practices. 

This will follow a set syllabus looking to maximize your time with the coaches. 

The afternoon will see Goalkeepers go out onto the Astroturf pitches and take part in practical sessions looking at Ball handling, Catching, Diving, Positioning and Distribution and applying these to a game environment
