The Next Generation Keepers school works in collaboration with Imparando Academy, located in Italy. This partnership offers students from both schools the opportunity to exchange sporting and cultural experiences overseas.
The idea was turned into reality in 2015 when directors of both academies Mister Emanuele Ameltonis and Mister Matteo Bonavolonta’ met for the first time in Rome, Italy. This successful and strong collaboration is extended to sharing the same training methodology and game philosophy. Both academies are ruled by the same view of the goalkeeper professional world.
Since the beginning of 2017, the directors of the NextGK School and Imparando Academy have been attending and collaborating in their schools main events, offering the opportunity to work together and exchange valuable knowledge, and developing this ambitious project to benefit both the Canadian and Italian athletes.
We have offered some of our students the opportunity to play soccer with coaches and goalkeepers coming from different cultures, having the possibility to visit a different country while doing what they love the most, playing soccer! We are proud to provide them with a life experience that is helping to open their minds to the world.
