Goalkeeping Academy

When it comes to developing players, IFC strives to achieve excellence. With goalkeeping being one of the most specialized and important positions on the field, cutting corners in development is NOT an option!

Our Goalkeeping Academy program is headed by former Chelsea Football Club coach & IFC Director of Coaching, Coach Craig Hollis. Assisting in our goalkeeping academy is Coach Joe Hollis, a former Fulham FC coach.

Coach Hollis comes from a very experienced background. Aside from playing the position growing up, he has also developed many goalkeeping programs in clubs up and down the east cost of the United States.

"Teaching a goalkeeper is like no other area of coaching and is one not be taken lightly. Being taught how to use quick, powerful, acrobatic movements safely is vital to any goalkeepers skill level and knowledge. Not rushing the stages of an individuals development, through quality and rigorous repetition, is a must-have philosophy in every goalkeeping coach's training methods"
