Over the past fifteen years or so running J4K goalkeeping training schools...  I have been asked soooo many times , 'why are we the number one goalkeeper training schools worldwide?'

Too be 100% honest I cannot not answer the above question because when I started just4keepers many many years back, I never really had a vision of Just4keepers going global across 21 countries and across 5 continents... I basically just wanted to provide quality goalkeeper training, coaching and help young keepers have the opportunity that I never really had growing up as a young keeper dreaming of become a progressional goalkeeper!

I think goalkeepers attend Just4keepers because they see our coaches combined experience from the coaches and they know that they have more of a chance achieving their dream of being a pro goalkeeper with J4K than any other coaching organisation... however do not take my word for it, listen to what these keepers say about the Just4keepers goalkeeper  training schools.

Are you wearing the WRONG Goalkeeper Glove?

Did you know 90% of  young keepers do not wear the goalkeeping glove that is correct for their hand which can caue many problems.
Result: A lot of drop balls making you look bad as a goalkeeper! so you need to get the correct goalie glove.

Also your gloves wear away ALOT quicker when you wear the wrong glove, meaning you have to buy even more gloves costing you more money.Other goalkeeper glove companies will not tell you this for obvious reasons! ie, they want you ro keep buying ... but at J4K we like to give you the knowledge to save money!
EVERY goalkeeping glove on the market has its own cut, so one glove can differ from another, so you need to know what is the best keeper glove cut for you and your hand... this is  important!
When goalies look for goalkeeper gloves for sale they just buy the gloves that their favourite professional keeper wears. This is a BIG MISTAKE… because what is good for this pro goalkeeper might not be good for the goalkeeper that copies them!
For example, did you know that rollfinger goalkeeper gloves are best for keepers with thin slim hands, and negative cut gloves are best for keepers with broad chunky hands! So if you get this the wrong way around, this will not help your goalkeeping! and this is a common mistake keepers make!
Unfortunately  the ONLY way you are going to find out  which is the best goalkeeper glove for your hand shape is trying them on in a game situation or ideally in a training session. Now this means you will most probably waste  a bit of money to try a few pairs on over the months  to see whats best for you BUT as there are only really four main keeper glove cuts, Flat, Roll, Hybrid and negative it will not break  your bank (Or your parents bank.. lol ), to find out the best glove for your hand shape.
The best goalkeeping glove help and advice that I can give you, is when you put on a pair of  goalie gloves on that feel really comfortable… go with your gut instinct and use this type of glove as you need to feel like you have not even got a pair of gloves on if this makes sense?

WARNING – If you put on soccer gloves on and they feel wrong, even by a small bit DO NOT wear these gloves as the chances are these are not good for your hand shape.
Hope this quick tip helps?

Goalkeeper Glove Size Guide

If you are a keeper or a parent of a goalkeeper it can be so difficult trying to pick the exact goalkeeper glove for your hand, especially if you are buying online because if you make a error and get the wrong size goalkeeping glove, you

1.      Have to return these gloves at YOUR own expenditure!

2.      Get the goalkeeper Glove Company to send you right size, again at YOUR expenditure!
So by picking the incorrect size glove the extra postage alone to put this right, can cost  you a small fortune, adding a good portion of cash to this gk glove, and this extra money onto your glove, makes it a very expensive glove.
Also if you are a parent of a keeper and you are trying to choose the correct glove for your child, the chances are you will unfortunately make this expensive mistake.
As we are keepers ourselves we do not want fellow goalkeepers and or their parents to make this costly error so what J4K  has done is designed a very unique goalkeeper glove size guide.
What you basically do is look at the goalkeeper glove size chart and check out the sizes and see which matches up to your hand size. You can also print of these size guides if you wish.
So please feel free to check out the guide are goalkeeper glove size chart and use this free service from Just4keepers..
Best of goalkeeping and we hope this helps you save money!
