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 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).

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.
