“I am pleased to have had the opportunity to be part of the Goalkeeping Australia Brisbane squad since 2009. I had only been a keeper for a couple of seasons at that time, and was keen to improve my game. The coaching and mentoring I received from the program coaches Frank, Thomas & John over the past years has been fantastic. My knowledge, skills, and confidence have grown significantly so too has my game. These guys certainly know their stuff, helping you to become the best you can in the position is exactly what they do. As I progress in the game I am privileged to have the team at Goalkeeping Australia around to help me. "
