Goalkeeper Program


This is the first year for the Goalkeeper Program. It is avaliable for MiniRoos (U8-U11) players as nominated by your team coach. As more coaches are found it will be expanded to include two players per team and Juniors (U12-U16). 

The Goalkeeper Program will focus on aspects of goalkeeping and the development of each player’s skills and technique.

The program will enhance the opportunities for young children to receive quality, consistent coaching.  In acquiring basic skills free of competition, participating children will not only learn correct technique but will likely develop a love of the “world game”.


Ipswich City Football Club Goalkeeper Program includes: 

  • 12 week program
  • 1 x 45min sessions per week
  • Learn goalkeeper specific  skills and techniques
  • Sessions that build skills through games and simple drills delivered in an engaging and inclusive environment
  • Every player gets plenty of time on the ball and the prime aim of each session is for children to build fundamental motor skills

Playing Equipment

Under our Duty of Care policy all players must wear shin pads, boots and bring a water bottle to all training sessions and games. Any player not wearing shin pads and boots will not be allowed to train.

Players are required to wear/bring:

  • Boots (Boots must have molded studs NOT screw in studs)

Wet Weather

When training or home matches are cancelled due to wet weather the field status on the club website will be updated as soon as possible. The Field Status is located in the middle of the website home page www.ipswichcityfootball.org.au

Parents and players are requested to contact their team managers or coaches for confirmation. Due to the high number of teams and players please DO NOT telephone, text message, email or Facebook message the club or Council as this will only tie up the resources and delay the Club notifying volunteers and or Football Brisbane.
