ABOUT COMPLETE GOALKEEPING
In 2009 Coach James Gilpin began his career as a youth goalkeeper coach. As a former young professional with Celtic FC of the Scottish Premier League and youth international goalkeeper for the Scotland national side, Gilpin was uninspired with the training available to young goalkeepers in the midwest region of the United States. After becoming an established Director of Goalkeeping with Midwest United FC he made it his mission to offer high quality goalkeeper training programs for youth goalkeepers as well as creating the Complete Goalkeeping Coaches Guide for aspiring goalkeeper coaches.
WHAT DO PLAYERS THINK ABOUT COMPLETE GOALKEEPING?
Wes Mink - D1 College Goalkeeper (Three-time 2014 Horizon League Defensive Player of the Week)
"Training with James through Complete Goalkeeping has done more than prepared me for college soccer, it has helped me succeed at the collegiate level. James has a very engaging personality and knows how to take the most out of each session. During James' training it is not always about getting repetitions and doing drills, he breaks down your technique and makes sure you know how to do things the right way. He is a quality trainer and is very intelligent about every aspect of goalkeeping."
Adam Grinwis - Rochester Rhinos (USL Pro Champion & 4 Year Starter at University of Michigan)
"I was fortunate enough to have to opportunity to train with James Gilpin here in my hometown of Grand Rapids. After four and half years playing soccer at the University of Michigan, I was looking to continue my soccer career and play professionally. James was kind enough to work with me in preparation for my professional trials. The sessions he ran for me not only kept me sharp, but also improved my goalkeeper fitness and technical ability. The intensity of his sessions were exactly what I needed to prepare me for training at the professional level. His engaging personality and knowledge of the position help create quality and enjoyable goalkeeper sessions."
Ben Kole - High School Age Group (National ODP Goalkeeper & MRL Premier)
"James has taught me all I know about goalkeeping and has pushed me to become the best goalkeeper I can be. James constantly pushes me in practices through both the most basic drills as well as ones that make me constantly think. James does not want the drills done well, he demands it. He has taught me to work hard during training but to rely on the basics of goalkeeping. He is easy to work with and is extremely flexible on finding a time to work together. I thank James for giving me the opportunity through his training to play at the highest level.”
Lauren Kozal - High School Age Group (National League, MRL Premier 1 & US National Training Center)
"I have been fortunate to have trained with James for a number of years now. My club team plays at a National League level and the techniques that James has taught me have served me and my team well. It isn't just about going through the drills with James. He wants to ensure your approach and technique are solid. While the training can be intense, he always seems to make it fun. I highly recommend goalkeeper training from James Gilpin."
Toby B. - Middle School Age Group
"Coach James is a great coach who inspires me, not just as a goalkeeper, but also as a leader on the field. Coach James knows not only what skills to teach me to be a really good goalkeeper, but also encourages me to have fun while I'm in the net"
Max Mairn - High School Age Group (U.S. Development Academy)
"Training with James has helped me reach my goal to become a Wolves Academy goalkeeper. He has prepared me to get to the next level and succeed, not just as a player but as a person. Training with James is very action packed, he knows how to always have you working on something different. He is very knowledgeable about all of the techniques required to be successful. He is a very good coach and person, he constantly pushes you to be the best you can be."
Lorrin McCarty - High School Age Group (Premier P2)
"James is an amazing coach and goalkeeper coach. He has helped me grow as a goalkeeper and has continued to help me get better and better every practice. The first practice that I ever went to he pushed me to do the best that I could. I have grown so much because he pushed me because he saw how much potential I have. James sees what you can become and how much you can accomplish in one practice. He knows what you can take and what you can't, but will push you to try and do what you can't do into something you can do. In my opinion James is the kind of coach that everyone needs and should look up to. If you want to be pushed to be the greatest that you can be James is the coach for that. I'm so grateful that I have a coach like James and how hard he pushed me and what he saw in me because he knew that I could grow into the goal keeper that I am today."
