About Elite Goalkeeping UK

A history of how Rudi Coleano started Elite Goalkeeping UK in 2002

Passing on the Knowledge

After nearly 16 years of being retired from full-time professional football due to a serious shoulder Injury, it has been a long and winding road of ups and downs! After the Heart-breaking reality, it was hard to come to terms with my career ending Injury so early on.

Goalkeeping was in my blood and there was no escaping that fact. In my time at Barnsley F.C. and experiencing life in the “Premiership” I was very fortunate enough to be coached by One of the Top Goalkeeping coaches in the country in the name of “Eric Steele” who is currently the 1st team Goalkeeping Coach at Derby the Former Manchester Utd 1st Team GK Coach, I also had the pleasure of training with David Watson on a daily basis - England’s former U21 and Barnsley’s 1st Team Keeper back in the day and who is now a senior member of the F.A England Goalkeeping Coaching staff at St Georges Park.

Elite Goalkeeping was born

Since my retirement I decided on setting up my own Goalkeeping school and passing on my skills, knowledge, and experience I gained working alongside some of the BEST coaches and Pedigree in the business as a young professional.

Most young Goalkeepers of today are sadly neglected when it comes to their team’s training sessions through the lack of knowledge of the outfield coaches, no disrespect to any outfield coaches but this is why Goalkeeping Coaching is such a specialised area especially today in the modern game!

Some coaches try their best to involve Goalkeeper’s but they need to be taught the correct habits, skills, and techniques. The true fact of the matter is Goalkeepers of today’s game is advancing more and more each year and requires “SPECIALISED” Goalkeeper training, from the every technical aspect…

…the list of areas goes on and on!
