For goalies aged 24 or over, including veteran keepers, there is relatively little on offer, even though there are many enthusiastic keepers in this age bracket who want some extra attention and would like to develop.

That is why Drijver Goalie Academy is organising an over 24s training trip for male and female keepers for the first time. It will take place in Marbella over four days in February, and will be a perfect combination: hard training, lots of fun, nice weather and a fantastic location.

Who is it for?

For female and male keepers aged 24 and above. Keepers of all levels are welcome, including veterans! You train in small groups at your own level. There is only space for 16 keepers, so don’t delay and sign up right away!


From Monday 10th until Friday 14 February 2020.

What does the training consist of?

We will train at Benalmádena hockey club, where we will make use of their top facilities. One day of the training day will be on the rock of Gibraltar! In total there will be six challenging training sessions, each lasting two hours. The sessions will be led by Martijn Drijver and his team of top trainers from Drijver Goalie Academy.

And what else will happen on the trip?

We will be staying in a four-star hotel on the coast. Every evening we will enjoy a delicious dinner together in Marbella’s old port. We can’t wait to get there!
