Whether goalkeepers have dreams to play for big clubs or not, we want to help each and every goalkeeper to develop within their capabilities and get them ready to play at the highest possible level they can achieve. Our academy will cover all techniques and skills of goalkeeping: specific warm-ups, handling, footwork, diving, shot diving, shot stopping, one v one, crossing, dealing with the back pass, distribution and so much more. These topics will be covered in realistic match related practices – giving you the edge when you return to your team. Come and join us!
The Hare Goalkeeper Academy is NOT connected to any football / soccer club. It is an independent organization and will work together with any interested clubs or individual players.
There are other programs out there, but there is only one Hare Goalkeeper Academy as the place where goalkeepers of all ages come for excellence, self-confidence and consistency. Attend one of our clinics, training programs or camps and initiate a special bond that will impact you for life.
