Goalkeeping and Goal Scoring Academy

The Football St George Goalkeeping and Goal Scoring Academies provide tailored training sessions related to goalkeeping tactics and techniques, and to help players create and convert goal scoring opportunities.

The Academy programs are delivered for players aged 10 to 17 years, and scheduled in line with the school terms.

The Goalkeeping and Goal Scoring Academies are delivered at the same venue and time, with keepers and field players working individually on skills before coming together to implement those skills in game related training (i.e., 1 v 1’s, crossing etc.).

Goalkeeping Academy

The Goalkeeping Academy is delivered by experienced Goalkeeper Coach and AFC A Coaching licence holder Frank Mrvcic.

The objectives of the Goalkeeping Academy are to;

  • Assess and enhance the basic skill levels of each participant.
  • Incorporate new ideas and techniques used in Youth Goalkeeping Coaching Programs and practised by many elite goalkeepers in Europe and South America.
  • Introduce and foster a psychological approach to performance by each participant.

The Goalkeeper Academy will evolve and adapt to challenge goalkeepers as they advance and strive for a higher level of training. All coaches have many years of experience in the game both in Australia & overseas. The coaches will push players to improve all aspects of goalkeeping in a fun, competitive, and high paced environment.
