Many clubs ignore the specialist needs of the goalkeeper. It costs money for them to hire a specialist coach and provide additional field space to provide training for what is arguably the most important position on the soccer field. The team coach has multiple players on multiple teams and can't always give you the time you need. The GKHQ Membership program provides all the knowledge you need.
Your team coach is unlikely to be able to give you the specialist training you need, but you also need to know about the theory or the game. When to go short or long with distribution, set piece set up, pre game & post game analysis. Equipment needs and end goal objectives. All these and much more are provided by Goalkeeper HQ's membership.
