Keeper Academy 2019 Winter Registration, now open!

The Keeper Academy is designed for all levels of goalkeepers and the coach to trainee ratio will be low.  We will challenge the advanced goalkeepers with advanced training, and help the younger, beginner goalkeeper become more confident in their shot stopping abilities while developing goalkeeping fundamentals from professional youth trainers and college goalkeepers. 

The Winter Keeper Academy will teach all aspects of this specialist position, which will allow the players to learn the basics and/or fine-tune the techniques and skills required to become a great goalkeeper.

The sessions will cover the main techniques and skills of goalkeeping; specific warm ups, footwork, handling, diving, and shot-stopping, all made specific to each age group and level of experience. 

All boys and girls interested in or already playing goalie are highly encouraged to attend these sessions.
