Goalkeeper/Striker Academy (Ages 9-18)
The goalkeeper academy is open to goalkeepers of all levels. Players will be grouped based on their age and ability level. Whether you are an established keeper at the club or high school levels or you are a young beginner, this camp will provide you the necessary training and help you improve your goalkeeping skills. The training sessions will focus improving the fundamental skills. Catching, positioning and footwork, distribution, and dealing with crosses will all be covered through the week. Coordination, agility, and strength training will be included as part of the curriculum as well.
This camp offers an excellent opportunity for young strikers to improve their sharpness in front of the goal. All the sessions will be functional training specific to the forward position. We will cover all aspect of scoring goals. Younger players will focus on learning the fundamental techniques while more advance players work on sharpening already learned skills. Training sessions will cover finishing off the dribble, one touch finishing, shooting from distance, heading, volleying, and more. Footwork, coordination, agility, and strength training will all be included as well.
Because this session is offered in conjunction with the goalkeeper academy, it’s the ideal training environment for the player who wants to learn how to score goals. This camp is open to all players. Campers will be grouped based on their age and ability level. The program offers both commuter and residential options. Commuters eat lunch.
