ABOUT GK ICON
A BIT ABOUT US...

When looking at top goalkeepers of the modern era they all share certain attributes that make them world-class. Solid technique on handling, distribution, agility, speed and the spring needed to move around the goalmouth.

The best goalkeepers also have the presence needed to fill those around them with confidence, knowing that they have a capable, calm and assured figure behind them, not to mention arguably the most important attribute a goalkeeper will posses - having the character to deal with the ups and downs the life of a goalkeeper is sure to experience.

Our belief is that there are certain advantages that some are bornwith but the majority can be learned through dedicated, focused hard work, and that’s where GK Icon comes in….

WHAT IS A GK ICON SESSION LIKE?

We can promise that a goalkeeping training session with GK Icon will be different from anything you will have done before; we will place more emphasis on speed, agility and spring than most and can promise that you will feel more powerful and confident in your game than ever before. Each of our coaches is armed with a variety of goalkeeping drills/exercises that are designed to stretch players out of their comfort zones and ultimately help improve them in all areas of their development.
