Led by Goalkeeper Coach, Ahmadulhaq Bin Che Omar, the course was designed to equip participants with the skills and knowledge through technical, functional, and integrated activities necessary to foster the growth and development of goalkeepers in their teams.
Over the three-day course, which was held from 18 to 20 August 2023, all nine participants actively engaged in leading practical sessions. They worked collaboratively in groups to create and deliver session plans. Before putting their plans into action, course participants had valuable consultation sessions with Coach Developers. These consultations allowed them to fine-tune their session plans and ensure they were in line with best practices in goalkeeping coaching.
