 GOALKEEPER TRAINING

The majority of goalkeepers spend most of their practice time standing in goal with orders to stop all shots. 
Obviously that is not sufficient training for the player who is possibly the most important one on the team. The goalkeeper is a specialist and will be coached as such.  Program will include warm-ups, teaching progressions and game-like scenario exercises to improve the individual’s goalkeeping technical and mechanical abilities. Player to coach ratio will not exceed 8:1.  All participants are expected to bring goalkeeper gloves, an 
appropriate size ball and a filled water bottle.

Level I Program is intended to benefit players with very little or no Goalkeeping training experience. 
Level II Program players with past goalkeeping experience will be expected to benefit from a more demanding level of instruction.
