LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR VERSATILE PROGRAM OPTIONS

At the International Goalkeepers Academy, we have structured our courses to suit goalkeepers of all levels of ability.

At the International Goalkeepers Academy, we work in structured groups where all keepers have to perform all tasks. Many parents and keepers have the idea that the keeper coach should do all the serving. In the modern game, the keeper must also have all the skills of a field player, and for this reason we have developed training drills that require the keepers to perform all techniques required in the game. The group situation also develops required leadership qualities and builds confidence and concentration levels.
The Junior Program

An introduction to goalkeeping practices for keepers aged 8 to 11 years. The course teaches the basic techniques of goalkeeping as well as team building and communication skills in a fun-filled environment.
  • Ball-handling routines
  • Diving
  • Punching
  • Shot Stopping
  • Distribution Overall
The Intermediate Program

This is the next step up. The course increases the intensity of training. The components of this course give keepers the platform to progress to the senior program.
  • Tactical Awareness
  • Physical Development
  • Psychological Development
  • Body Maintenance 
The Senior Program 

(Maximum keepers in group: 8) 

A higher level of proficiency is required to advance to this group. Keepers participating in this program will already have ambitions. This is another stepping stone in career development which prepares keepers to reach their full potential.
The Advanced Program 

(Maximum keepers in group: 8)

This program is for keepers who have targeted their careers towards a semi-professional or professional status. Keepers will have been identified, assessed and tested by IGA coaching staff to ensure that they are capable of gaining the full benefits of the curriculum. The keepers in the Advanced Program will also have a gym program designed to meet their specific needs and the course also includes theory sessions and video analysis.
The Premier Program

Catering for goalkeepers who are preparing for trials with State League, A League or overseas clubs, this program prepares keepers to trial successfully at any level. This is a challenging program and supplies all the necessary keeper tools to become a professional keeper and will extend keeper ability to the maximum.
All coaches instructing in these sessions are accredited with the Coaching Council of Australia and receive regular updates through the Academy.
