I would like to extend my gratitude to XLR8 for such a wonderful first experience using their services.  My goalkeeping-mad son has had the pleasure of being taught by some highly-skilled goalkeepers (including a current Australian women’s goalkeeper) on a Monday night these last 9 weeks.

The whole XLR8 team have been a pleasure to deal with (including before I signed up for the course) they have been very approachable both before and after training which is great as a parent to get feedback.  The coaches have also mixed up the training sessions to make it fun and enjoyable as well as teaching them the skills they require to succeed at any level of goalkeeping they care to get to - my boy tells me all the way home how much he has enjoyed the session (and then how tired it has made him !).

Thanks XLR8, we will be seeing more of you soon and will be registering for the next term as soon as it becomes available.
