Not only do j4k Surrey coach children, in our opinion most important and fun position In football, goalkeeping we also coach adults in the wonderful position.
For the past 3 weeks we have had the pleasure of coaching an amazing bunch of women the art form of goalkeeping. The opportunity for us to do this has come along thanks to Crawley old girls who are a womens recreational football club who run training sessions and games for women of all abilities. They gave us the opportunity to coach there goalkeepers and we are so glad we accepted.
This group of women are some of the friendliest people I’ve had the joy to coach. The attitude towards goalkeeping has been excellent and they have listened to every bit of advice we have given them. The entire group has wanted to learn and progress there abilities, asking alot of questions during the session and creating a fun atmosphere amongst the group.
The progress we have seen in just 3 weeks is incredible with some keepers in the first week only having a basic knowledge of goalkeeping and now they have good handling and catching techniques, diving for shots and not using the feet for every save. One goalkeeper even saving a bottom corner penalty full stretch in a full size goal!! I look forward to seeing how far they will all progress in the coming weeks!
I highly recommend any women looking to keep fit and meet some great people to come along to either our goalkeeper sessions for Crawley old girls or go along to the Crawley old girls sessions check out there facebook site here: https://www.facebook.com/CrawleyOldGirls/
