GOALKEEPER CLINIC SERIES – 2015


 

The 'Goalkeeper Clinic Series'  is designed to provide training opportunities to goalkeepers of all levels in an effort to create an environment which fosters individual development. The training programs allow for the qualities of the goalkeeper to be enhanced and refined through specialized, challenging, and age appropriate training. Our sessions focus on the fundamental techniques of goalkeeping layered with the physical, tactical and psychological demands of the position. Each session is a topic that trains all four major pillars of goalkeeping including:

TECHNIQUE / TACTICS / MENTAL SKILLS / PHYSICAL DIMENSION

Basic Positioning
Footwork
Set Position
Basic Handling
Advanced Handling
Diving
Breakaway Saves
Distribution/Field Player Skills
Communication
Restarts
Flexibility & Coordination
Strength & Agility

We break the technique down teaching to attain a solid foundation of goalkeeping. The soccer goalkeeper is one of the most important players on the field. A field player first, they are the last line of defense and the first line of attack. To play the position well requires special skills and training.

Our professional coaches and ability-appropriate training plans enhance players both technically and tactically, while ensuring the most important aspect: FUN! Thousands of players have boosted their self-esteem and interacted with their peers from their community thanks to these clinics. Fitness and quality of life increases exponentially.
