GOALKING Field Player Academy - Curriculum
The sessions will be run in 3 parts, the1st focusing on basic skills development, the 2nd on developing tactical skills, and the 3rd implementing what was learned in the session in drills that recreate game situations in which Field Players are combined with Goalkeepers covering topics of importance to both positions. This 3rd part helps both the Field Player and the GK understand how what they learned in the technical and tactical part are implemented in a game. So, Field Players learn how to interact and work together in their different positions (strikers, midfielder, and defender), and defenders learn specifically to work together with their GK and how to communicate back and forth during the play. Attackers will learn, for instance, how to play a cross in an attack, at the same time as GKs learn to improve that same skill in dealing with crosses. Specific challenging situations that players encounter in games will be set apart and recreated, so that Field Players and GKs both can be instructed and practice over and over the proper positioning, technique, and skill for each micro-aspect of the game. Coaches are ASA (Alberta Soccer Association) Licensed.
GOALKING Academy for Field Players works as a complement to Community and Competitive Teams in our Edmonton Region, where GOALKING provides extra training and instruction to youth players who want that extra edge to be more competitive in their teams and Clubs.
GOALKING Academy for Field Players will be offered year-round, with the initial season in April-May-June 2018. Below you will find 2 different programs offered. Parents can chose to register your son/daughter for the "Weekday Program", or you can chose the "Weekend Program" (you don't need to participate in both -- if a parent did happen to want to register for both, talk to us and we will give you a special discount).
To register your son/daughter, go first to the program in which you are interested--either Weekday training or Weekend training--then find the program that is according to the age of your son/daughter, and click on the TeamSNAP Logo, and the system will take you to the TeamSNAP GOALKING registration & payment site.
