We've partnered-up with DW Goalkeeping Academy and Colchester United FC First Team Goalkeeper Coach, Yilmaz Aksoy, to deliver a practical ‘Goalkeeping Coaching Masterclass’ on Monday 19th February at Billericay Town FC’s New Lodge.
The face-to-face CPD (Continuing Professional Development) workshop, which will run from 6:00-8:30pm, is aimed at coaches who want to develop their understanding of goalkeeping, to learn techniques for incorporating goalkeepers into team sessions and to explore ways of engaging and challenging them. Attendees can expect:
* a showcase of fun, safe and engaging sessions to support goalkeepers within a team session
* discussion and conversation with the current First Team Goalkeeping Coach at Colchester United FC, who also operates within the FA National Goalkeeping Department
Essex County FA Coach Development Officer, Thomas Sibthorpe, is looking forward to the interactive workshop, commenting: “We’re delighted to provide this Goalkeeping Coaching Masterclass event. Goalkeeping is a unique position on the pitch, which requires specific techniques and skills, and specific coaching support.”
“Coaches can often be unsure of how best to integrate goalkeepers within their team sessions. We’re excited to provide Essex coaches with a goalkeeper-specific event to help them consider ways to support goalkeepers, practicing some of the techniques and skills required in that position.”
