To improve the Goalkeeper, we must first improve the coach
Welcome to the GkNexus Members area
For too long now, the Goalkeeping position has been left behind, in terms of having modern and regularly updated content accessible to educate and improve knowledge of Goalkeeper Coaches across the world.
With our hugely popular Members Area, we have changed the landscape on how Goalkeepers are coached all over the world.
With a focus and dedication to developing and educating goalkeeper coaches all over the world, we have assembled a team of highly experienced and respected, UEFA A Licensed Goalkeeper Coaches, to provide our Members with the best educational goalkeeping content, the internet has to offer.
On a weekly basis, we provide relevant, explained and outcome-driven resources for coaches to use with their goalkeepers and to aid their personal education as coaches. Our content caters for goalkeepers and coaches across a plethora of different formats, ability levels and environments.
We explain the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ behind all of our content, as well as providing in-depth information as to how you can transfer them to your own environment, to improve your Goalkeeper. We are changing the way Goalkeepers are coached all over the world and YOU can join us on this journey.
Make no mistake, if you want to educate and develop yourself as a coach, under the guidance of some of the best names in goalkeeping, this is the place to do it.
