Goalkeepers that excel will have the opportunity to represent the New Forest Football Academy to showcase their talents at the highest level.
Our goalkeeper sessions address all key areas from handling, shot stopping and positioning. Goalkeepers within our programmes will be expected to perform the roles of the modern day goalkeeper, staying actively involved in outfield play throughout, providing a passing option for teammates and performing the role of a defensive sweeper, as well a goalkeeper. As a result footwork, movement and distribution form an absolutely critical part of our goalkeeper programme.
Goalkeepers will be expected to engage in outfield training as part of their fundamental development. Our Academy goalkeepers are required to be comfortable using both their feet as well as their hands to reach their potential and meet the demands of this specialist position in football.
When we feel that our goalkeepers are ready they can take the next steps, with the opportunity to be selected to represent the Academy and showcase their talents at the highest level against the likes of AFC Bournemouth Shadow squads and Academy.
Local grass-roots teams may also wish to utilise our bespoke goalkeeper training programme for this specialist position.
