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.

Joseph, New Player for The FC Edmonton Academy

We are happy to share with the GOALKING community that our Trainee, Joseph Holliday, has accepted the invitation to join the FC Edmonton Academy this coming September 2017.  Joseph has worked very hard for this opportunity, training and playing always up to his optimal level and beyond.  Joseph has been a GOALKING trainee for 3 years, and last summer he attended the Elite  SoccerPlus camp in Fullerton, CA, with Tony DiCiccio.  Last winter he was selected to play in the ASA Winter Program, and also invited to join the ASA Alberta Provincial Team squad.  At only 12 years old, Joseph has been attaining Elite positions in our soccer community, culminating now his acceptance into the FC Edmonton Academy.

Coach Armando and all the GOALKING goalkeeping community is very proud of Joseph, who has moved yet another successful step forward in his promising soccer career.  Good luck Joseph!
