Bad Weather means the Worcester Goalkeeper Academy shall now re-commence on the 25th January 2013

Just as we have this Friday’s activities all prepared, the weather men issue bad weather warnings… With heavy snowfall forecast over most of the country, Worcester included, means that (even though we are dedicated Goalkeepers and Coaches) we have had to postpone our start to next Friday…

It's Snow Joke, bad weather delay's the start of the Worcester Goalkeeper Academy

Very sorry for this short delay, normal service shall be resumed next week! 😉

Worcester Goalkeeper Academy has kicked off this new season in style

Since the Worcester Goalkeeper Academy started back in September, we have seen an upsurge in attendance. Not only with a big influx of new Goalkeepers but also new coaches.

The reputation of the Academy is starting to spread… It is a reputation built on quality, that we are there to develop all aspects of the Goalkeeper, preparing them for their club football matches, technically, physically, socially and psychologically.

Don’t just take our word for it, we have had Managers and Parents feedback to us on how much they have seen their Goalkeeper improve, with one recently picking up the Player of the Match award!


But it isn’t just the Goalkeepers that we are attracting, as this season sees 5 new coaches in the academy. This means that we can provide much more focussed time with our Goalkeepers, with many of them benefitting from 1 to 1 and 1 to 2 coaching sessions, meaning that they get even more training time to develop their skills.

If you are a Goalkeeper looking to develop your skills in a focussed environment or a Coach looking to develop Goalkeepers (must have as a minimum: CRB, Safeguarding and First Aid), please contact us via: http://www.worcestergoalkeeperacademy.com/contact.html

2011-2012 Awards Evening – You all deserved your awards

So after the fun and games on the final day of this season’s Academy, we had our Awards Ceremony. We have seen improvements in every single goalkeeper at the Academy and as such we gave them all a well deserved medal to praise their efforts at the Academy.

Special recognition went to Sam Causley, who after much discussion between the coaches was awarded the Worcester Goalkeeper Academy Coaches’ Award . We all agreed that not only have we seen improvement in Sam’s goalkeeping (like all our keepers) but also we were impressed by the effort he puts in every week, his all round attitude to training and that in terms of coachability, all the coaches agreed that Sam always listens to our advice and puts in to practice what he is taught…

… Well done Sam and indeed well done to all our Goalkeepers!

See you in September!
