Foundation of Light has teamed up with Evolution Goalkeeper Coaching to provide specialist training to the charity’s Player Development Centres.
PDC players will work closely with Evolution’s goalkeeper coaches and Foundation staff to develop tailored programmes designed to improve their skills through individual training plans and group sessions.
Focusing on every aspect of the game and role of a goalkeeper, sessions will follow a rolling curriculum to identify player needs and strengths.
We’re delighted that our Player Development Centres are partnering with Evolution Goalkeeping Coaching to provide tailored and focussed coaching for our goalkeepers and offering an extra dimension to our programme.
The partnership will see Evolution provide tailored goalkeeper coaching to our players week, as well as providing ‘in game’ coaching during small sided matches and external games.
Created to give goalkeepers the best chance to develop, Evolution is a professional goalkeeper coaching service which aims to take players from grassroots to academy level.
James Howarth, Company Director at Evolution, added: “We are delighted to be partnering up with Foundation of Light, a great organisation who we are very proud to be working alongside.
“Evolution will add value to their Player Development programme and we believe the partnership will be a platform for other projects with the Foundation in the future.”
The Player Development Centres are for boys and girls who have shown promising skills and commitment through Foundation of Light’s Open Trials, Schools, Evening and Weekend or Holiday programmes and invited to attend advanced weekly coaching sessions.
