As part of our Leyton Active programme, we provide dedicated open goal keeper training sessions.  The sessions are run with FA qualified coaches, in order to teach the girls the principles of goal keeping from the basics of understanding their area, where the can and cant pick the ball up, diving skills, using their hands properly including  punching the ball, and using their feet and having the confidence to go 1 on 1 with the striker.  Fitness also features in these sessions.

What to wear:
All participants should bring their own football gloves and dress for outside weather.  Sessions will continue despite the British weather.  So, during the autumn and winter, if it’s raining or cold we recommend the girls wear gloves, thermals and a suitable waterproof coat.

Who should attend?

Beginners to girls with moderate goal keeping skills are welcome to attend these sessions.  These are drop in sessions and no commitment is required.

Talented players are able to move from these sessions to League Teams and train with the league goal keepers.
