Purpose & Objectives

To provide a platform for ambitious goalkeepers willing to optimise their skills under the guidance of highly trained and experienced professionals.  It is highly likely that the game in the future will be quicker, more technical and tactical, and the demands on our younger players will be elevated. We offer a structured program providing the perfect start for players wishing to reach the highest level.

Admission Process

The academy is aimed at players who specialise as a goalkeeper and are passionate about goalkeeping. 

Players who are interested in giving goalkeeping a go should speak to their team coach and play in goal a few months before deciding to take on the goalkeeping academy. 

Players must be 100% committed to training and learning.
