Here are some of the most common questions parents have, but should there be anything else you would like to ask, please don’t hesitate to contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org
What training should my child expect?
We will be covering every aspect of goalkeeper coaching from handling, crosses, shot stopping, the last line of defence and distribution.
We do have a set plan in place, but weather can dictate which sessions are delivered at times.
This means there might be last minute changes to the itinerary, but it will be an action-packed course.
What is their training schedule?
Breakfast is normally scheduled for 8.30am and students are on training field for 10 am for the morning session.
Lunch is served at noon – 1 pm, with the afternoon session following from 2-5pm.
The evening meal is set for 6 pm, followed by either a third session or some fun activity with the students.
Please be assured that students will work hard, but down time will be balanced for fun and rest periods – which is equally important.
Can I pay in instalments?
Yes… We offer instalment options so you can spread your payments.
All you need to do is make a deposit of £100 to secure your place.
When booking just click on the instalment option.
Can parents watch training?
Yes… You will receive a training schedule, so you will know when the sessions run.
Is the course open to girls?
Yes! We have at least one female member of staff on each course.
All the girls will be roomed in a separate area, with a female member of staff, away from the boy’s accommodation.
Girls will train with the boys within their age group.
Everyone will be in houses or floors with others from their age group.
Some rooms are single, but the majority will share a room.
If your child would like to share a room with a friend or would be happier in a single room, please let us know.
Students are only allowed to go into their room, making sure that their possessions are safe and everyone has privacy.
Students can socialise in the communal areas.
All coaches are qualified and have an up to date DBS.
We will also have some special guests on the course.
Many of the coaches are either former professional goalkeepers or some current semi-professional goalkeepers.
We have a ratio of 1:8 members of staff to every child from ages 9:12 and 1:10 ratio for ages 13-18.
Can we pick up students from airports and train stations?
We are not covered by our insurance to pick students up, and with all our staff required on site, it is not a service that is provided.
What is the age limit?
The youngest goalkeeper we accept is nine years old, with the oldest being eighteen.
We cannot accept students under the age of nine, as our insurance is not valid in this instance.
How do you select the training groups?
Goalkeepers work in age-related groups, but we assess their ability to give them the best development during their time with us.
My son/daughter has allergies, needs medication or particular dietary requirement…
All of the schools are used to dealing with special dietary requirements; we just need to let them know in advance.
Any medication needs to be given to a member of staff with clear instructions written on it with your child’s name.
What happens if my child is fussy eater?
All of the schools offer a wide selection of food at all meal times.
Staff always monitor children to ensure that they are eating enough food and the kitchen staff are always more than happy to make something your child will like.
We expect all students to stick to the code of conduct.
We do not tolerate bullying, and everyone is expected to get along.
What is the cancellation policy?
We cannot offer a refund if for some reason your son or daughter cannot attend the course.
If your child is ill or injured on the date of the course, we can allow you to transfer your booking across to an alternative course at a later date.
Many of the coaches are parents themselves, so we always try and make sure your child‘s stay is made comfortable.
Parents will also have contact numbers for coaches and are most welcome to call anytime if you feel your child might be feeling homesick.
