Goalkeeper Extreme academy focuses on four essential areas critical to a keeper’s success ensuring this vital and specialist position gains the attention required.
Our program is the perfect place for all committed goalkeepers to hone their technique and foster their passion for the position. Isolated practice in unopposed or semi opposed situations will enable development of technique. Repetitive work on hand and foot speed, catching, throwing and kicking is critical for muscle memory, agility and hand eye coordination.

Tactical components are covered including the goalkeepers role in counter attacking, providing additional coverage for defenders and offering support play to help to maintain possession.
