About DW Goalkeeping Academy

The DW Goalkeeping Academy was established in 2016 by Dan Worthington, following on from 4 very successful years running Goalkeeping sessions for local grassroots clubs.

Professional, modern and innovative training sessions designed to develop Goalkeepers who are just starting out to Goalkeepers that are playing Academy football at professional clubs.

Based in Essex, weekly training sessions are on third-generation (3G) artificial grass pitches across venues covering Shenfield / Basildon / Havering / Maldon / Romford and surrounding areas.

Head Coach Dan is a passionate, enthusiastic and qualified Goalkeeping coach with experience coaching at grassroots and within a professional environment. He has held positions at Dagenham & Redbridge as Assistant Academy Goalkeeping Coach and currently West Ham United as their International Academy Goalkeeping Coach. He has experience coaching in the UK and the USA, having worked for numerous category 1 Academies stateside on their national camps in partnership with Global Image Sports.

Dan and the Academy coaches have overseen some of the DWGA keepers who have excelled go onto sign for professional clubs, with others securing trials.
