To improve and develop Goalkeepers performance through the teaching of correct techniques from an early age and by using match related situations or Teaching Games for Understanding.

I think it is important to use Guided discovery to aid Goalkeepers to come up with their own solutions,.This is to develop thinking Goalkeepers, who can make their own decisions.

His main aim is to deliver fun and quick tempo sessions so the young goalkeepers will be motivated to learn, enjoy the experience and want to return to the Academy for more coaching.
