Goalkeeping Programme

The Christchurch United goalkeeping programme provides specialised coaching for goalkeepers of all ages.

The program focuses on developing the technical and tactical skills required for the modern goalkeeper.

You will be placed in a group with goalkeepers of a similar age and/or ability to allow for more opportunity to identify your individual strengths and weaknesses.

Sessions will be adjusted based on this so that all goalkeepers have the best chance to develop their goalkeeping skills and reach their potential.

Holiday Programmes
