The Football Factory is proud to announce that we now offer Goalkeeping Specialist Classes.

Improve your key skills to enable you to become the best goalkeeper you can be. Our outstanding coaches focus on all of the key elements a goalkeeper needs.

“Football is a team sport, until the goalkeeper makes a mistake and then it becomes an individual game.”
[Alex Welsh, Goalkeeper Coach, Arsenal FC]

The football goalkeeper is one of the most important players on the field – they are the last line of defence and the first line of attack. To play the position well requires special skills and training.

Here at The Football Factory we believe in giving special attention to the often-neglected position of the goalie. All training will be held by professional, highly qualified, engaging staff and will focus on areas such as…

  • Footwork
  • Positioning
  • Handling
  • Shot-stopping, inc. diving
  • Dealing with crosses
  • Organising your defence
  • One v Ones
  • Distribution
  • Confidence

On match-day a Goalkeeper’s warm-up may consist of just picking the ball out of the net whilst the coach focuses on the rest of the team. At The Football Factory we have the time, the energy and the experience to develop goalkeepers of all ages and levels to reach their full potential.
