FA Level 1

in Coaching Goalkeepers

About The Course

England Football Learning is undertaking a review of our Goalkeeping qualifications, and therefore we are not currently running courses. We are expecting new learning opportunities to be available from Spring 2022.

We will keep learners updated with the latest information, including how to book onto courses when they become available.

In the meantime, have you visited the resources section of The Boot Room lately? Full of articles, session plans and interviews, there is always something to support you.

  • The FA 4 Corner Player Development Model which will help you understand the long-term development of your goalkeepers as a whole person
  • The FA Plan, Do, Review Model, helping you construct appropriate practices and sessions for your goalkeepers
  • A series of practical coaching ideas, giving you the ability to recognise the various ingredients that make up safe, fun and engaging practices to help your goalkeepers develop
  • Support in linking practices together to create a coaching session for goalkeepers
  • Practical coaching opportunities both on the course and where possible with your own goalkeepers
