Jamie Kelly

Head Academy Goalkeeping Coach

  • Date Joined: 12th August 2020
I have over 7 years coaching experience in Grassroots football and 2 years coaching experience in Youth Academy football.

I am current Head of Goalkeeping within Stirling Albion FC Youth Academy

During my time here I have implemented personal development plans for each of our goalkeepers - currently reviewing them every 6/8 weeks

My duties include tasks which involve

the design, delivery, and reflection on coaching sessions for all age levels within the Academy (16s-20s)

Liaising with other key departments within the academy such as Sports Scientist and Physio for players who need recovery work/ injury prevention techniques and or medical treatment etc.

Liaising with the performance analyst before and after games and monitoring different tracking techniques.

Adhering to the Academy’s Code of Conduct for coaches and all other applicable Club policies, including Health & Safety, Child Protection and Social Media, at all times, ensure the players are aware of what is expected of them at all times.

As, I have been the only ever youth coach to be called up to the first team in their history. I have bridged the gap between the youth Goalkeepers and first team Goalkeepers. By facilitating and motivating them with training once a week; every week on a rotational basis. I have bridged the gap with the community team goalkeepers, by allowing their goalkeeping coaches to come in and shadow academy sessions. The opportunity to send some of their boys up to us every three months as well. Implementing a development plan and reviewing it every 6 weeks alongside video analysis, none of this has ever been done

I have my own Goalkeeping academy working with players ages 7plus right up to men and ladies senior players.
