Academy Overview and Coaching Staff

192SQFT Goalkeeping Academy is a unique opportunity for goalkeepers to learn and hone new skills from top English Premier League coaches. The camps philosophy is based on the belief that a firm technical base underpins a goalkeeper’s development supported by progressive tactical knowledge and enhanced by physical conditioning. All physical conditioning should be functional, position specific with the aim of enhancing all movements made by the goalkeeper within a game. These skills and methods will enable each keeper to be more confident in their own ability and display a positive attitude. Stoke City and Manchester United Goalkeeping coaches will use this camp to identify talent.
