On Friday the 4th of March saw the start of Catalan Elite’s new Goalkeeper Academy for young aspiring keepers born between 2001-2009. The program is designed and implemented by their UEFA Pro licence goalkeeping staff.

Jose has international experience in Europe and Asia, having worked for professional clubs and academies such as Arsenal Academy Soccer Schools in India and SD Logroñés from Spain.

Catalan Elite Goalkeeper sessions are based around the smart football methodology. The keepers will work on all aspects of their game, which include; shot stopping, handling, dealing with crosses, distribution, supporting attacks from behind and acting as a sweeper when defending.

Each weekly training session is tailored towards the individual, with the focus being how, where, when and why they would implement this work into game realistic practices.

We have developed a clear development structure for goalkeepers with our academy. We will always train in relation to the game; this is what makes our goalkeeper academy unique. Players will work specifically with our goalkeeper coach for half of the session developing individual technical aspects of their game.

They then work within the session with our outfield players working in real game situations. This will focus on the tactical elements of the game, directly associated with the outfield players, focussing on, putting their individual goalkeeper training into practice.

If your interested in having a free session compliments of DB Sports Tours, email us at info@dbsportstours.com, referencing Catalan Elite GK Academy in the subject matter
