Since BeNumber1 Coaching was launched in 2013, we have seen our Academy grow from offering 1 coaching session per week with 4 Goalkeepers, to offering coaching services 6 days a week and overseeing the development of over 50 Goalkeepers in any one week.
Since opening, we have taken on Goalkeepers with no past experience at all and nurtured them into fine young Goalkeepers, resulting in them joining a local club for the very first time.
We have also overseen 4 of our Goalkeepers, sign youth contracts with some of Scotland's top professional clubs, something we are really proud of.
We not only pride ourselves on offering high quality Goalkeeper Coaching, but we feel that being role models for our Goalkeepers is just as important.
BeNumber1 Coaching was founded by our Director and Head Coach, David Scott, in 2013.
David has been coaching Goalkeepers since 2006, at first balancing coaching with playing semi-professionally. However, after his playing career was brought to an abrupt end due to a serious knee injury in 2009, he decided to focus fully on developing our next generation of Goalkeepers.
David began volunteering his coaching services in his local community, whilst working towards acquiring his SFA Coaching Certificates on all pathways.
David is now an SFA Licensed Goalkeeper Coach, who has vast knowledge and experience having held positions within some of Scotland's best youth academies, as well as in a professional capacity with SWPL side, Glasgow Rangers Ladies.
David is proud to work alongside and support all other coaches working within BeNumber1 Coaching, encouraging and supporting all coaches on their journey to achieving their coaching qualifications and goals.
In the future, we look forward to maintaining our high standards and growing ourselves as coaches, as well as our Goalkeepers potential.
