Being a Goalkeeper can be a lonely and under appreciated position..

When a leading brand in equipping goalkeepers has a slogan reminding us “Goalkeepers are amazing people!!!” We recognise that we are often misunderstood, and that it should never be in doubt that we are both amazing! and people!

Read our story.



Sometime in the 2000’s the two David’s established SOS to address the need for Goalkeeping instruction back on their native island of Ireland. Dave Harte generally became very busy being the best GK in the world (certified 2 x FIH GK of the year!) and David Williamson (not the best GK in the world) transitioned permanently to the USA where SOS continued underground… Until now.

The early days..

What we do…


Clinics & Camps

2-day camps for GKs only - get ready for pure GK action (no need to jump in drills with field players!)

What to expect:

  • 6 action-packed filled sessions that focus on technical skills, application, decision-making, and consistency

  • Top level coaching provided by world-class staff

  • Open to Resident and Commuters

Club visits

Want us to come to you? One of our favourite things to do is visit clubs and work with the developing GK’s. We cater to all needs and levels.

For club visits, we offer the following services:

  • Set up a high value GK curriculum

  • Weekly to monthly scheduled instructional/practice sessions to develop continuity

  • Collaborate and advise the coaching staff to provide them with long-lasting tools and a solid knowledge base in coaching GKs

  • One off drop in clinics



Recruiting Events

For the last 3 years we have been very proud to partner with the NFHCA developing and delivering the Shot Stoppers recruiting events at Winter Escape and Spring Fling. We have some new developments for January 2020 to really push this to a whole new level.
