The objective at Royal York is on developing each goalkeeper to their highest potential in order to fulfill their goal of playing house league, making the Select/All-Star team or pursuing the Rep and Elite player pathway.

The Goalkeeping Technical Training is for Boys and Girls aged 8-13.

The key to being a successful goalkeeper, regardless of level is the ability to play consistently. RYFC’s goalkeeper training sessions have been proven to provide goalkeepers with insights into proper technique while focusing on honing strengths and improving on areas requiring further development.
