Goalkeeper Coaching

We have a fabulous keeper coaching session every Saturday morning at The Phoenix Sports Club, Styal Road from 9.15 to 10.00am where you’ll learn the art of goalkeeping with our specialist goalkeeper coaches.

Our goalkeeper coaching class is extremely popular and is open to all children aged 6 to 12 who want to improve their skills between the sticks.  Keepers will follow a special programme designed to improve positioning, handling, kicking, throwing and agility.  This is an area that most coaching organisations tend to forget about, but Wilmslow Football Academy is dedicated to offering the best possible coaching for budding Ederson and David De Gea’s!

This specialist session is recognised as the best goalkeeper coaching in Wilmslow. Since we introduced keeper training many young keepers have gone on to play for clubs in the area and many still return for extra training to hone their skills. Our very best keepers have gone on to train with Manchester City’s Academy which is testament to what can be achieved with dedication, hard work and practice.

Keepers spend an intensive 45 minutes with our keeper coaches who put them through their paces before the usual WFA sessions begin and then most join in the usual training and show off your new skills to their team mates! Some choose to just do the keeper coaching only which is fine too.

It doesn’t matter whether you are total beginner in nets, a player that has decided that the keeper position is your position or simply a player wanting learn the skills of the main man at the back. This session has something that will improve you as a player and help you understand one of the most important positions on the pitch.

Strikers get the glory but goalies save the day!

As Mark Lawrenson once said – “If your a goalkeeper, it doesn’t matter what you save the ball with – if you keep it out its not a goal.”
