GOALKEEPER ACADEMY

Goalkeeper Academy

The Goalkeeper Academy program is offered as 1 extra training session a week to Rec-Plus and competitive goalies.  The sessions focus on goalkeeping techniques.  At times goalkeepers don’t get to fine tune their skills during their individual team training sessions, as most of them are focused on team concepts. This program allows the goalkeepers to integrate a goalie specific session into their weekly training regimen to keep their skills sharp.

These are a few of the topics covered at Goalkeeper Academy:

  • Stance, footwork, ball handling
  • Angles and positioning
  • Shot stopping: catching, diving, and deflecting
  • Ball distribution: throwing and punting
  • 1 v 1 breakaways
  • Crossed balls

Our mission is to provide an environment where committed goalkeepers of all ages can develop a true working understanding of the position of tending goal.
