With club coaches wanting there keepers to take part with team training sessions this then means the keepers are more often than not missing out on specialised goalkeeper coaching. A solution which some young keepers are doing is training 1 week with their club and the next week with a specialised goalkeeping school.

Ideally keepers should be getting weekly coaching but as a work around to get the balance right this solution is better than not getting any specialised goalkeeper coaching at all.
