Welcome Message

Hi guys,
Thanks for coming on and checking out my new site. This idea came about after a young goalkeepers’ parent brought it to my attention that there are very few resources out there for young aspiring goalkeepers. I was very privileged to go through my career with some amazing coaches who taught me everything I know today but specialist coaches are few and far between. The purpose of my site is to share the knowledge I have gained over the years and hopefully provide a resource where goalkeepers can learn new skills, get ideas for drills and ask any question they like about goalkeeping or hockey in general. It is also a useful tool for any club or school coach who may want some help with the goalkeeper in their team.

I will also be posting updates and photos from tours and tournaments so you can all keep up to date with the Hockeyroos progress towards London 2012.

Id love to hear your suggestions and questions so feel free to send something through or click subscribe to receive weekly updates on my posts and the site.

Bye for now

What a great idea Rachel. Students keen to learn hockey at Eltham College are always interested that you started your hockey here & that I knew you as a student & neighbor. It helps them forget their injuries & return back to the game. Well Done, Celia

Hi Rachel,
This is an awesome resource! And I thank you much! I am currently an assistant varsity field hockey coach and my job is to work with the goal keepers for my local high school. I was a goal keeper 15 years ago and achieved great lengths. I am wondering if there are new techniques and would like to brush up on my coaching knowledge. I am looking forward to this resource and your knowledge to help me improve the skills of our goal keepers. Before I ask you a bunch of questions I am going to check out your posts first. Thank you!
