Our goal is to develop Goalkeepers and Goalkeeping standards through specialist Goalkeeper coaching that is committed to the continual improvement of Goalkeeper specific skills and abilities, using a large pool of qualified coaches, resources, knowledge and experience.
It is the centre for the development of all keepers, of all ages and abilities, as it has a number of coaches available to develop any keeper. There are no restrictions, as all keepers who come to us have the ability to develop. Come and check us out…

What a great night last Friday…
Since we achieved our accreditation with the FA, we have gone from strength to strength, not only attracting more keepers every week, but also more coaches too.
We had our awards after the final session of the season, with 21 of the keepers on our books now. They all received a medal for their efforts, with congratulations and applause for all from coaches, parents and the other keepers.
Not forgetting those that were unable to attend, congratulations to those keepers too!
We had 4 additional awards, 2 each in the older and younger category. Congratulations to:
- Jodie Whiteman – Star Keeper
- William Hemming – Star Keeper
- Callum Weaver – Most Improved
- Olivia Rooke – Most Improved
Although if you can’t wait that long…
If you want some more goalkeeper training over the Summer, the Worcester Goalkeeper Academy coaches will be putting on Goalkeeper specific sessions that your keepers can attend at the WCT Raiders Football Academy on the 3G at the KGV (King George V Community Centre), Ash Avenue, Worcester WR4 9TL. The dates for these sessions will be:
- 21st May 2016
- 18th June 2016
- 23rd July 2016
- 20th August 2016
The Football Academy there is on from 10:30 am to 11:30 am and they charge £2 for the hour. The keepers are welcome on other Saturdays if they want to come and get involved in the outfield training sessions too, it may help on other skills, as footwork and understanding the outfield play are also useful to a goalkeeper.
So may be see you Saturday’s… Otherwise see you in September 😉
Recognition of our abilities was one of our key goals, so we are extremely proud to announce, that the Worcester Goalkeeper Academy has received Accreditation for its coaching from the Worcester FA.
A massive thank you must go to all the coaches at the Academy and also those of the past, who have helped build it into a centre of excellence for Goalkeepers and Goalkeeper Coaches.
