Foundation of Goalkeeping course - Registrations now open

Registrations are now open for the Foundation of Goalkeeping course, which will be delivered on 11th Feb 2024, at ServiceFM Stadium, Gepps Cross.

The Foundation of Goalkeeping replaces the former Goalkeeping C Diploma and Goalkeeping Level One courses.

The Foundation of Goalkeeping course is designed as the first accreditation step for coaches, parents or volunteers who work with, or plan to work with goalkeepers of any standard across the country.

The Foundation of Goalkeeping maximises learning through practical coaching opportunities and interactive presentations that build goalkeeping technical knowledge. The course provides strategies for implementing Football Australia’s goalkeeper vision within a wide variety of football environments. This includes instruction on how to plan and adapt practices for between one (1) and six (6) goalkeepers of varying ages and ability levels.


$100 AUD.

The course fee must be paid in full within three (3) days of course registration.

Football Australia does not accept instalments.

Registrations will be deleted if a coach does not make payment and the spot will be made available to another coach.


A Candidate is required to attend 100% of a coaching course organised by Football Australia.

In extenuating circumstances (illness, injury), Football Australia may allow a Candidate to make up missing modules/sessions as long as their total absence does not exceed ten (10) per cent of the total duration of the course. All missed units must be made up within 6 months of the completion of the course.

Travelling Interstate

If a coach elects to travel interstate or considerable distances within their own state/territory:

  • Football Australia does not cover fuel, flight, accommodation or any travel associated costs for coaches to attend the course.
  • Coaches should not expect to be transferred to an course in their state/territory of residence, should a course become available at a later point. It is assumed that by registering and paying for a particular course, a coach will attend that course in its entirety without moving to another. 

Aimed at volunteer parents and coaches working with novice players or players aged up to approximately twelve (12) years old.
