Safe Hands Goal-Keeping Courses
Goalkeeping courses concentrating on key skills such as shot-stopping, dealing with crosses, basic handling and footwork.
The number one priority for a goalkeeper is to stop shots from entering his or her goal. The single, most important aspect of goalkeeping is to handle the ball. There are a variety of handling techniques, but unless the ball can be safely caught then advancement will be almost impossible.
Coached by Hitchin Town 1st Team Goal Keepers Charlie Horlock and Josh Mollison these courses provide goalkeepers with the technical ability they need for their specialised role within the team.
WHEN: WEDNESDAYS, 5-6pm
WHO: Boys & Girls all ages
COURSE STATUS: POSTPONED
WHEN: FRIDAYS, 5.30-6.30pm
DATES: 23rd April - 21st May
