Who i am
My name is Jan Splinter and I am a professional goalkeeper coach, working for many years in pro football.
Currently I am working for Ajax at our partner club R&F Guangzhou in China, were I am responsible for the goalkeeper development in the youth academy.
I’ve played myself many years in the amateur leagues but never as a professional.
My coaching carrier started at FC Lisse and Van Nispen. From there, I have worked for the KNVB in different ages on district and national level.
I’ve worked at the KNVB with boys as well with girls from different ages.
After the KNVB, I went to HFC Haarlem were Ajax signed me up. After 2 great years in the academy and the first team of HFC Haarlem, it was time to move fulltime to Amsterdam where I’ve worked for 5 years as goalkeeper coach.
I was responsible for the development of all goalkeepers in the academy as well as the second team who play in the professional Leaque.
After Ajax, I started my own company and worked in Greece and Italy. I also started my own webshop for goalkeepers.
From august 2013 until December 2018 I have worked for 5,5 years at Almere City FC with the first team, playing in the Jupiler League / Keukenkampioen Division.
From January 2019 i was responsible for the education of the goalkeepers and goalkeeper coaches from Guangzhou R&F in China
In 2021 my responsibility was to educate also the goalkeeper coaches of Sharjah Fc in the United Arab Emirates
My goal is to bring goalkeepers to a higher level and bring them, if possible, to professional football were ever in the world.
