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 Video Analysis & Evaluations

Service: MY GK ELITE PACKAGE: Complete Video Analysis and Evaluation of a Practice and a Game to Present to a Scout

This service has been designed for Elite goalkeepers who need a video analysis to share with semi-professional and professional teams, or to send the video to universities and colleges scouting goalkeepers who request a video analysis from GKs applying.   The service includes the recording of a regular game, as well as the recording of a prepared training session specifically tailored to showcase the GKs skills.  GOALKING will then edit the recorded images and video precisely to best highlight the GKs strengths.  Typically this type of showcase video for a scout is from 15-25 minutes in length (longer videos are available upon request).  This service is generally required when the goalkeeper has mastered all the skills and techniques of the position and is considered an Elite Goalkeeper.

Video Recording + Evaluation

Service: MY GK EVALUATION: Video Evaluation From GK Technical Aspects From a Practice or a game

This package includes a video evaluation using the professional software "Focus X2," a tool that helps to analyze and evaluate more closely the current skills of a goalkeeper who has the future goal to play at an Elite competitive level such as for university or college, or professional team.  The Focus X2 software sorts the GKs techniques and tactics according to category (i.e. all examples of collapse diving, or extension diving, or distribution techniques, etc.) putting them sequentially in the video.   Comments within the video itself  of each technique are thus able to be much more specific, analyzing the precise position and movement as the GK repeats the same technique in the context of game or practice and under different situations.  Goalkeeper coaches and team coaches can use this video to rank the skill level of a goalkeeper by seeing each of essential skills of goalkeeping performed in turn.
