The St. Louis Goalkeeping Academy is proud to announce that it has agreed to become partners with the International Football Academy in Lancashire, England. The International Football Academy is a year round residential goalkeeping program that works not only to train goalkeepers, but also to place goalkeepers with professional teams in both England and continental European countries.


The program is overseen by Billy Stewart who was formerly the U-18 & U-16 academy goalkeeping coach for Liverpool FC. Billy currently is both the youth goalkeeping coach at Everton FC, as well as the goalkeeping coach for England's U-20 boys National Team.


The International Football Academy is the second European partnership for the St. Louis Goalkeeping Academy, which has been partnered with Eger FC of the Hungarian first division since 2011.


We look forward to a great partnership with Billy and the International Football Academy over the coming years.
