"I was accepted into the Goalkeeping Australia Academy when I was 12 years old. From the very first training session, I have been made to feel a part of the squad and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The coaches utilise a variety of skills and drills at a high level of intensity, which promote constant growth and development. The fellow goalkeepers in my squad inspire me to push harder and strive for success. The endless output of high-quality goalkeepers are a testament to John’s ongoing commitment to the Academy and everyone involved. John provides me with continuous support and encouragement and with his help I hope to keep pursuing and reaching goals in my football career."
