Founded in 2019, Beestera Goalkeeping is a goalkeeper specific academy that looks to educate and motivate goalkeepers of all ages and abilities. Our goal is to provide a fun, challenging environment that develops both strengths and weaknesses of the goalkeeper. Utilized as a specialized training tool to supplement team training, each session will test the individual mentally and physically by providing different insights of positional understanding. With our direction and motivation, we strive to give each individual goalkeeper the proper skill set to reach their maximum potential.
