The Purpose of our FLY HIGH Goalkeeping School is to offer age specific and Specialized Training to all our goalkeepers to make sure they progress and develop individually within our club.
Goalkeeper is a unique position and although it is very important to train with your teams to work on foot skills and the understanding of the game, it is just as important to receive specialized GK training from a knowledgeable coach.
Just like how an outfield player will work on each aspect of their game at practice, a goalkeeper must do the same, if not more than a field player. Coaches with no goalkeeping experience can often give misguided information and cannot correct goalkeeping techniques. With Specialized coaching we are seeing goalkeepers improve each year, and we want to see our goalkeepers ADVANCE to that next level.
A Goalkeeper Needs… To be HARD WORKING, have DESIRE and be MENTALLY STRONG! THE FOUR C’s: COMMITMENT, CONFIDENCE, CHALLENGE & CONTROL
Programs we will offer
Fall and Spring Goalkeeper Training with up to 2 days (varies due to Schedule) a week of goalkeeper training, along with helping the coach on a 3rd day occasionally with the goalkeepers in their team practice as well.
Summer & Winter Programs– During the off-season, we will provide TWO sessions a week with our GK School. It is important our goalkeepers receive year-round coaching.
Specialized GK Camps– Camps will be made available during Summer and School Holidays.
Game Day– Warm-up & Evaluate- On game days, the DOG or GK staff coaches will be present to take warm-ups and provide game day coaching as they will be there to watch as many games as possible.
