NSCAA GK Level 1 Diploma
The overall objective of the Goalkeeping Level 1 Diploma is to explore some of the myths and mystiques surrounding the goalkeeping function. The course is directed towards the team coach - not the specialist goalkeeper coach. The object is to empower the coach with knowledge and practice methods that will enable the coach to evaluate a goalkeeper in game situations and then design an appropriate practice program for goalkeepers in and outside of team practices. The course includes lecture (theory) and field (practical) sessions. Click here for registration form.
After completing this two-hour course, all participants will be fully certified in Adult and Child CPR and the use of AED devices. Those who complete the course successfully will receive their certification card. You must pre-register. Click here for registration form.
