I have known Mick Strain for 3 years now. He joined my Skills Academy School of excellence staff as our goalkeeper coach in May 2007 and has been a fantastic asset to our team.

Mick's coaching manner, technical knowledge and enthusiasm for developing goalkeepers puts him as one of the best goalkeeping coaches I have ever seen. I have been at a number of clubs over the years and experienced top coaches at VFB Stuttgart, Waldhof Mannheim (Germany), Schaffhausen (Switzerland), Crystal Palace, Gillingham, Charlton Athletic and the England Futsal team.

Within our School of excellence, Mick has helped develop one potential talent so well that he is now a regular in the Charlton Athletic academy and another is now attracting interest from various professional clubs.

The feedback from the keepers is always positive and it is clear to see that they trust Mick and thoroughly enjoying his training sessions.

Thanks Mick and Cam for all the hard work you both put in during your goalkeeping sessions. Full of enthusiasm you both never want to finish! Whatever the weather conditions the boys never complain and walk off with huge smiles!! We are so grateful to you both for all the help and encouragement that you have given to Tom in the last year or so, especially after the horrific incident he had in a game. All the areas of his game improved to such an extent that various academies came knocking at his door. Its been an incredible few months for Tom at Tottenham but he will never forget the special friendships he has made with you and all the boys at Keepersball who he wishes all the very best to. And he is very very proud of your logo lads!! All the best for the future and hope to see you soon: Tom misses his goalkeeping wars Cam!

I have been attending Keeper-Ball since it's concept and this course has improved my all-round keeping skills no end, thanks to Mick and Cameron their dedication in improving lads such as myself and is unbelievable and I will be eternally grateful to both of them.

It is always hard work but incorporates so much fun and the time spent there seems to fly past.
