The most unique position on the field needs its own type of training. Our academy goalkeeper training is for players who are looking at the possibility or have already decided to become a goalkeeper. The core skills learned in this training are different to those of an outfield. However, there are some transferable skills. So, in our Academy goalkeeper training this what players will learn.
- First touch (inside, top of the foot and thigh, chest, in the air and on the ground)
- Kicking (long and short passing, of the ground and out of the hand)
- Throwing (under arm and over arm, long and short)
- Catching (both sides, low, high, mid)
- Punching and parrying (two hands together, one hand (both hands)
- Diving (low, high)
- 1v1 defending the goal, (positioning, timing, bravery)

There will also be a one-off fee of $50 per year to help cover the cost of the special academy shirt and extra pair of shorts.

It is also important to note that players need to be registered with an MWFA Club to participate and be covered by insurance.
Wet Weather Plan
It is the eventual plan of the club to source an artificial or indoor facility in the future so that there is no need for a wet weather plan.
However, until that time arises, we are at the mercy of mother nature. As such here is our wet weather plan. We will run sessions during the holiday on the exiting weekdays and or Saturday/Sunday morning. These days are free as kids do not play during the holidays.
