Goalkeepers are specialists within a team and therefore require a different approach to skills, techniques and even mindset.
The position of goalkeeper is one of the most psychologically demanding on the football field.
Great saves and blocks are temporary . . . mistakes are final !!
The glory is usually reserved for the players at the other end of the field.
It’s not a position for everybody.
At Giffnock Soccer Centre we run Specialist Goalkeeper Training for kids from 8 years and up (non Giffnock SC Keepers are also welcome).
These sessions are currently held at Giffnock’s own new 3G pitch each Monday and Friday evening at Eastwood Park, next to The Eastwood Theartre.
Rouken Glen Road
The sessions are split between FOUR age groups and will run on Monday and Friday evenings.
Marc Waters, Elgin City (and ex Giffnoc SC Keeper Academy ) plans and runs our senior Training each Monday.
Ian plans and runs our Primary age group Training each Friday .
