The National Goalkeeping Coaches Forum is open to coaches who have a Level 1 Certification or higher.

This professional development opportunity is designed for goalkeeping coaches that have a basic understanding of the position. The focus will be on coaching development of goalkeepers of all levels and how to effectively integrate them into your team training. Program content will be delivered through a combination of practical on-field demonstrations and classroom-based workshops and will include:

            - The introduction of USA Field Hockey’s“Goalkeeper Development Framework”
-Coaching the technical aspects of goalkeeping
            -Effective practice design for developing goalkeepers
            -Integrating goalkeepers into team practice

"The third edition of the annual National Goalkeeping Coaches Forum will drive conversation around goalkeepers and their development forward with the introduction of the new Goalkeeper Development Framework," said Phil Edwards, USA Field Hockey's Senior Manager of Junior High Performance. “The Framework guides the why, how and what that is delivered in the Junior High-Performance environment and includes the purposeful integration of goalkeepers into team practice. As such, the 2019 National Coaches Forum will prove insightful for all coaches whether you consider yourself a goalkeeping specialist or the thought of being left to work with the goalkeepers fills you with dread!”
