The Club provides specialist goalkeeping sessions for all the Junior Reds teams.
These sessions are at Bexleyheath Academy on a Saturday morning as follows:-
- Players aged 8, 9, 10 and 11 from 9.00am to 9.45am
- Players aged 12 to 18 from 10.00am
Head Goalkeeper Coach Tony Ball explained ” In most teams the goalkeeper is the poor relation at training sessions as the emphasis is with the outfield players. The goalkeeper is, however, a key position on the pitch.
To address this we provide specialist goalkeeping coaching. The goalkeepers from the individual teams come together for their own session once a week and then return to their teams to complete their training. Goalkeepers all meeting together is unique and provides an opportunity to reflect on the games just played”.
