The latest tailored training scheme to be offered by FIFA, the new goalkeeping programme is primarily aimed at goalkeeping coaches working at national level.

At regional seminars with national-level goalkeeping coaches, FIFA brings in international goalkeepers and top-level coaches to train participants, and introduce them to world-class training methods.

In parallel, FIFA has put together a training kit for coaches consisting of a comprehensive manual and three DVDs (regarding skills training, physical fitness and exercises for young goalkeepers), which are used and handed out at the FIFA seminars.

This programme, launched in 2011 and still in its pilot stage, is scheduled for launch and implementation in all confederations by 2012.
