GOALKING Soccer School Academy

Professional Soccer School Academy

The GOALKING Academies are now year-round training schools for youth soccer players in the Edmonton Region, for field players and goalkeepers.  GOALKING Academies are endorsed by the Alberta Soccer Association, with a 3-Star Endorsement for the established GOALKING Goalkeepers Academy, and with the new GOALKING Soccer Academy already with a 1-Star Endorsement at its opening. 

GOALKING Soccer Academy is the new GOALKING training program for field players.  GOALKING has put together a top-notch Licensed Coaching staff, including former Professional players (such as a former Uganda National Women’s Team player), with many years of experience training and coaching youth soccer players in different countries. 

The Mission of the GOALKING Academies is to provide basic to advanced training to youth who wish to improve and master technical and tactical abilities to compete at higher-level soccer competitions in our Edmonton Region or beyond.  GOALKING Academies are independent from any soccer team or Club, but the Academies function as a complement to teams or clubs for players who want to develop to the top of their potential.

Several GOALKING Goalkeeper Academy trainees have already advanced in their soccer careers by being accepted or serving as tryalists in youth Regional programs of the Alberta Soccer Association (Winter Program, Alberta Team, REX, etc.), and GOALKING Soccer Academy is set up to lead to the same opportunities for its field player trainees.

GOALKING Goalkeeper Academy - Curriculum

Combine = Session with Field Players & Goalkeepers Together in the Same Drills

The sessions will be run in 4 parts,  the1st focusing on basic skills development, and the 2nd on developing tactical skills; in between the 1st and the 2nd, our strength & fitness instructor will work with our players to improve and maximize their physical conditioning and strength (the 3rd part).  The 4th part involves implementing what was learned in the session in drills that recreate game situations in which goalkeepers are combined with field players covering topics of importance to both positions.   This 4th part helps both the goalkeeper and the field player understand how what they learned in the technical and tactical part are implemented in a game. For instance, GKs will learn how to deal with crosses at the same time as field players learn to improve that same skill; GKs learn how to interact and work together with their defensive players at the same time as defensive players learn to work with the GK.  Specific challenging situations that players encounter in games will be set apart and recreated, so that GKs and field players 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 goalkeepers 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.
