Goalkeeper Training In long island
My name is Archie Watts, I am from Bristol, England, and I have been playing in goal since the age of 8. I played local football in Bristol up until 12 where I was spotted and went to trail at West Brom. From there I was picked up by Southampton football club and played at their satilite academy in bath for 2 years. At 14 I was picked up by Yeovil town academy where I played for 2 years. I this time I played up for the u16’s and u18’s, as well as captaining the u16’s in my final season. From here I went to SGS college where we because the first college to win both national titles in the same year. As well as this I have played in the Western league for the last 3 seasons. I have also represented both Bristol and Gloucestershire at multiple age groups. I recently moved to the US on a soccer scholarship at Hofstra university.
I started coaching aged 15 and I have been coaching every day since for the last 4 years. During this time I have earned my FA Level 2 coaching badge and have been the head goalkeeper coach at multiple regional talent centres in Bristol, as well as working for J4K Bristol.
James started J4K Bristol (UK) in 2010 and now has 14 sessions per week with around 350 keepers in weekly attendance.
Prior to running to running J4K, James player for Bristol City FC Academy/Youth team from aged 9-18 before being released for being too short.
During this period, James was coached by some of the best GK coaches in the area 2/3 times a week as well as playing against other Youth Teams including Arsenal, Chelsea, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Southampton and many others.
James also coaches the SGS College keepers in Bristol which is where he met coach Archie. Having been impressed by Archie’s goalkeeping and coaching he was offered a coaching role within J4K Bristol and proved very popular with the keepers. He is now keen to continue his coaching journey and having moved to Long Island on a football scholarship and with the help of James he will be opening another J4K GK School.
