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.

Latest GOALKING player success story - KC

I want to share with all of you the latest success story from one of our GOALKING members. Yesterday, Caitlyn Ledgerwood (KC) signed her contract with the University of Alberta Pandas women’s team starting in Fall 2019. The amazing part is that she has just started Grade 12, and the Pandas have had her sign a year in advance to secure her with a full scholarship at the U of A for the duration of her 4-year degree, a full year before she finishes high school. KC has attended multiple GOALKING programs for more than 3 years now, in addition to her weekly training time with me through SW STING and ST. ALBERT IMPACT. Before KC joins the U of A Pandas in 2019, KC was selected to be part of this Winter season of the 2018-19 Alberta North Regional EXCEL Centre (REX) program, which is a feeding program for women soccer players to potentially play for the women’s Canada team; this is a very prestigious program of the Canadian Soccer Association and the Alberta Soccer Association to which only 26 women players from Northern Alberta are selected.

We are very proud and pleased to see the level to which our youth players can get with hard and consistent work. Everybody can have access to National, Provincial, and City soccer programs, but it is up to you to work hard to merit these opportunities.

Congratulations to everybody who contributed to KC’s achievements, and congratulations to all the GOALKING family for another success story from one of our hard-working members.
