Goalkeeper Academy

The Ole GK Academy programs are the best foundation for GKs


A properly trained goalkeeper is the key to a team’s success. Having a properly trained goalkeeper can affect the outcome of a game more than any other player on the field.

At our Goalkeeper Academy, we use the methods of renowned Brazilian coaches to help goalkeepers of all ages develop a true understanding of how to tend the goal. Ole Soccer also offers an elite goalkeeper training program for travel and premier players who want to bring their game to the next level.

Creating a good goalkeeper

Our goalkeeper program involves technique, strength conditioning, tactics and the psychology of the game. Key topics include:

  • The importance of physical strength for a goalkeeper
  • “Playing the odds” to block shots
  • Confronting 1v1 breakaways
  • Covering for low and high attempts at goal

“A properly trained goalkeeper can affect the outcome of a game more than any other player on the field.”
