GoalKing Keeper Training Program
Selects FC is proud to offer Professional Goalkeeper Technical Training provided by a Professional Technical Training Program for goalkeepers created for Canadian youth and has trained more than 200 goalkeepers in Edmonton since 1997. GoalKing is operated by PRO Canadian Soccer Group and was founded by Armando Sanchez and Frank Phillet. The program was developed on principles learned by Armando, a former professional goalkeeper in Mexico in his youth, who continued with post-professional development as a trainer for youth players in Mexico, Canada, and the United States.
As part of Armando’s development, today he continues to study and acquire other soccer methodologies in Latin America, from Brazil, Argentina, and Colombia, borrowing techniques from their best goalkeeper training practices. The purpose of GoalKing is to train and educate youth goalkeepers and to stimulate the interest of young Canadians in this fantastic soccer position. Armando Sanchez and GoalKing are members of the world’s largest soccer coaches’ organization, the NSCAA (National Soccer Coaches Association of America), holding the Goalkeeper Level III Diploma.
GoalKing bases it’s training on the following 5 principles:
- Goalkeeper Technical Training
- Goalkeeper Tactical Training
- Goalkeeper Mental Development
- Goalkeeper Physical-Skill Building
- Goalkeeper Field Coaching Support
For the upcoming 2022 2023 Indoor season Selects FC will be adding several new trainers that will help take our program to new heights of excellence.
This is an exciting time for the club and our technical growth. Get involved with Selects FC and get top-notch training and competition.
