All classes are held at our Academy Home Ground:

West Warwickshire Sports Centre, Grange Road, Solihull, B91 IDA, Day/Time: Fridays 6.00pm-7.00pm

Our Goalkeeping Technical based football training is for children of all abilities from 5-12 years and runs alongside the FootieBugs Academy.


The professional football training sessions are delivered by qualified and experienced goalkeeper coaches. The FootieBugs Goalkeeping Academy helps young goalkeepers with their knowledge, positioning, handling, distribution and kicking along with helping children gain confidence and much needed social interaction.


At FootieBugs we make sure all practice related drills mirror match play scenarios. For added value, our Goalkeepers will have the chance to participate in our Elite Development Squad outfield session that runs alongside the Goalkeeping session. During this, players will receive advanced 1 to 1 coaching live as the match is going on. We have found this improves players at a dramatically quick rate.




We use engaging and challenging drills to develop all the key attributes required for goalkeeping including:



  • Goalkeeper specific warm ups
  • SAQ work: Speed, Agility and Quickness
  • Agility, mobility and co-ordination drills
  • Shot stopping including angles, technique, recovery saves and positioning
  • Distribution including throwing, kicking and switching play
  • Body shape, hand shape, co-ordination, fast feet
  • Handling and footwork
  • 1v1 situations including decision making, safe diving technique speed work
  • Dealing with the back pass including decision making drills under pressure, control, short and long passing
  • Set plays including how to set up to defend free kicks and corners
