USA Goalkeeper Training


The modern Goalkeeper has increased demands to be a more complete player than ever before. The responsibilities of the goalkeeper extend far beyond just standing between the posts. To be effective, goalkeepers must participate in the prevention of the development of goal scoring chances inside and outside of the penalty area. USA Goalie Camp will reinforce skills the player already possesses while teaching new skills and techniques to improve player performance and ultimately keep the ball out of the back of the net! There will be great training for keepers with beginner, mid-level as well as more advanced experience.

Technical Focus:

Ø  Cutting off angles                                                    

Ø  How to handle crosses

Ø  1 vs 1 situations

Ø  Penalty kick strategy

Ø  Breakaway strategy

Ø  Dispersing the ball: Kick vs Throwing

Ø  Proper catching technique

Ø  Defensive sliding for protection

Ø  Foot work

Ø  Low, mid, and high diving skills

Ø  Playing off the line
