Who are we?

With an outstanding background as a professional player and many years of teaching experience,

ELGK Academy Director, Yilmaz Aksoy, brings both his passion and his expertise to the field, helping the next generation of goalkeepers to believe and achieve!

 

ELGK was founded in 2015 following the lack of professional goalkeeping coaching available to young children in London. The Academy endorses a comprehensive approach, understanding the role that sport plays in many people's lives. Coaches at ELGK Academy aim to create an environment that best develops young goalkeepers, allowing each individual to express themselves regardless of their background or knowledge. ELGK Academy is an academy which tries to not only educate goalkeepers with the fundamental skills required to be the best goalkeeper, but also to teach the fundamental skills to take away as an individual; learning in all areas. 

 

We at ELGK Academy have an Academy philosophy of providing a positive experience for all of our goalkeepers, delivering sessions that encompass  all areas of the 4-corner teaching model: we consider the technical, physical, psychological and social elements of all of the goalkeepers. This allows each individual to express themselves and develop their skills further.

Testimonials

Sion Thomas

Sports Psychologist - ELGK Academy Parent

I got in touch with ELGKA, and from September 2015 we enrolled on a weekly 1.5 hour session on a Friday evening. The facilities at the venue are first class...

What has been most rewarding has been the experience. Each week, there is a different theme, and all keepers are challenged despite there being differences in ages as well as in their current levels of performance. Yilmaz and his staff are excellent and I have no hesitation in recommending ELGKA if you are looking for specific goalkeeping sessions that are challenging, rewarding and ultimately fun. 

Ben will continue to thrive in this environment, and we look forwards to the start of next season's programme.

Mark Bentley

Ex-Professional Footballer - Current Football Manager

Working with Yilmaz in many institutions over the past few years, I have seen his passion and enthusiasm in developing goalkeepers really develop goalkeepers; taking them their abilities to new heights! I would recommend ELGK Academy to goalkeepers of any ability!

Helen Lippell

ELGK Adult Goalkeeper - Personal 1-to-1 Goalkeeper

East London Goalkeeping Academy has helped me evaluate my strengths and weaknesses so I could return to playing competitively. Yilmaz puts a lot of thought into every training exercise, and his passion and knowledge shine through. The modern goalkeeper doesn't just stand around waiting to make a save; they have to be physically flexible, mentally sharp, good footballers and technically adept. ELGK can help committed goalies be the best they can be

Carlos Santos

Academy Coach - CM Futsal Director

Yilmaz and his dedicated team of coaches at ELGK Academy, having created a unique and extraordinary environment to develop and nurture goalkeepers in the vastly talented East London area. The feedback I have heard from individuals and seen myself first hand has been excellent. ELGK is an Academy every goalkeeper within East London needs to be attending if they want to further and push themselves to the next level! Keep up the hard work ELGK!
