Hello current and future goalkeepers.

I will be running goalkeeping training/coaching this year on Friday mornings 6am – 7.15am at Shenton.

The sessions will be focusing on 3 levels, advanced and improving, improving and beginner.

Depending on the number of goalkeepers who sign up, the sessions will be completed in blocks with possibly alternating weeks for different groups.
The sessions will also be geared towards training others to be coaches and to have more senior goalies capable of training the juniors.”
