Our Mission

UGKA Mission Statement

The United Goalkeeping Alliance (UGKA) emphasizes a goalkeeper culture while supporting goalkeepers around the world through every stage of their development. The UGKA is an ever-growing network of goalkeeper coaches with agreed upon goals of educating generations of goalkeepers.  Our goal is to create a goalkeeping culture and further develop every aspect of goalkeeping for participating coaches, goalkeepers, and parents alike.  Primarily, focus is on the 5 elements of a goalkeeper's development.  Those 5 areas are: tactical development, technical knowledge, physical growth, psychological balance and social connection.

UGKA Vision Statement  

The UGKA's virtual education platform was created to enhance goalkeepers growth both on and off the pitch.  Through identifying and acting upon win/win opportunities, we aim to provide a culture of guidance through collaboration, participation, and ideation.  Collaboration comes from our training plans, video analysis, presentations, Q&A and other means of education. Monthly, a group of United Goalkeeping Alliance coaches will coach, facilitate, and educate based on assigned goalkeeper topics.
