As modern football constantly changes and becomes faster and much more demanding, so it affects how the role of the goalkeeper is evolving too!
The methodology behind modern goalkeeping requires much attention and continuous innovation than one can imagine. And yet the starting point for any young goalkeeper remains to be the same and that is a decent and perfect technical base.
Our goalkeeper philosophy is simple and a sum of years of experience, studies and research that never stops and is continuous to ensure that I deliver the best to my goalkeepers each session. It is 100% goalkeeper-centered, which meets their needs and their long-term goals. The focus in each session is:

The Football Academy (TFA) is a niche soccer academy head quartered in Dubai , with FA & UEFA qualified coaches we focus on the local talent pool, to identify the talented, passionate and committed and guide them to playing the highest level of soccer.
Technical skills are the foundation of good football. The skills needed vary from one position to another, with a goal keeper needing different skills than a field player. Our weekly sessions work on the English FA's 5 fundamentals of soccer: Dribbling, passing, shooting, heading and touch.
Football often comes down to the strategy that a team employs at the end of a close game. We examine and teach team tactics, preparedness and the organizational skills needed to play effective football. Utilising UEFA designed 8 V 8 sessions, we deliver 90 minute sessions training our players in tactical principles of pressing, transition, counter attack and fluid movement.
50% of goals are scored from set play. We organise a weekly session improving set play, freekicks, corners and even throw-ins.
From inception, the success of The Football Academy has been built on the quality of our coaching. We truly believe that football isn’t a one-dimensional game, so we combine different philosophies when it comes to teaching our students the principals of soccer.
Our coaches come from different parts of the world, equipped not only with the relevant professional certifications they all contribute with their diverse coaching and playing experience to delivering rich, full-scale soccer learning curriculum.
TFA provides the best football coaching in Dubai through its team of professional FA & UEFA qualified soccer coaches.
