The academy is run by Michael Dougherty for Keepers of all levels & all ages. They originally discovered the Crazy Catch as recently as 2 months ago and ordered some Wildchild Double  Troubles and Freestyles for use with their young keepers; helping them to develop their technique and reactions.

They were an instant hit with Michael quoting “I have used them both in some sessions & would like to say how happy we are with them. Both items are fantastic & perfect for the young goalkeepers in our academy. Such was the impact on using them at last weeks coach mentoring group I have had an interest from several of the coaches about buying them.”

Since those early days, Flicx UK MD Richard Beghin has recently been over to Belfast to see NIGK in action and was very impressed by the professionalism of the sessions. The guys have also filmed this video below and continue to use them at the academy daily with all the kids really enjoying working with the “Ultimate Rebound Net”.
