THE PROGRAM

The AIFC Goalkeeper Academy will bring a unique approach to athlete development where goalkeepers can immerse themselves in a truly elite working environment. 

From the start we will work closely with each player in creating their athletic profile, finding areas of weakness and strength in order to address or build on those qualities.

GOALKEEPER PHILOSOPHY

In line with the overall philosophy and identity of play at AIFC, our goalkeepers are considered our initial point of attack. It is important that keepers in this Academy Program attain a great level of distribution on the ground, garner a greater long-range passing game, while also being engaged and comfortable with the use of small passing windows and spaces.
