NZF GK Level 1 Coaching Award

We are constantly looking to up-skill and develop our GK Coaches and are excited to offer the NZF GK Level 1 with this one-day course. If you are a current Goalkeeper wanting to get into coaching this could be for you as we are constantly looking for quality GK Coaches for our staff. If you are a Goalkeeper and feel you don’t get enough quality training then this is a great opportunity to join this course and take some responsibility for your own development.
