RHSC' goalkeeper training will be led by our Club's Goalkeeper Coaches, Rasih Pala and Nora Abolins. To learn more about both Rasih and Nora, including their past playing and coaching experiences, click here.
Under the guidance of our Club’s Goalkeeper Coach, players who sign up for our training will be taught both essential and advanced skills, such as positioning, shot stopping, distribution, and footwork. Our clinic also helps young goalkeepers improve their technique and agility in a fun and energetic environment, as well as provides a boost in self-confidence.
"My son had a great time at the goalkeeper clinic on Saturday. The coach was unbelievably good, very experienced at coaching kids. It was full of practical skills coaching that was delivered in a very kids friendly approach."
- Stanley, RHSC Parent
