GOALKING Goalkeeper 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 goalkeepers are combined with field players covering topics of importance to both positions. This 3rd 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.
GOALKING Academy for goalkeepers 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).
