Goalkeeper Training Program

Goalkeepers are often the overlooked individual in the team. At Glen Eira FC we have put a goalkeeping program in place to produce our vision of the complete goalkeeper.

Goalkeeping is a crucial and privileged playing position. Glen Eira FC will deliver specific goalkeeping instruction in a professional attitude and demonstrate a useful approach in their training. Our objective is to provide the foundation and grounding goalkeepers need to improve their technical skills to succeed in football.

Glen Eira is dedicated to developing fundamentally sound goalkeepers whom our teams can depend upon.

 

Training Program

Glen Eira’s goalkeeper training program runs on Saturday afternoons. There is no cost for the program however please note that each Glen Eira team can only nominate one goalkeeper and that goalkeeper should aim to attend all sessions.

  • The program is designed only for the primary goalkeeper in each Glen Eira team.
  • The program isn’t designed for part-time keepers who get rotated through the position.
    In rare circumstances if a team has two players who are both focussed on becoming good goalkeepers, then both may attend.
