Goalkeepers must possess and improve a separate set of technical, mental, and physical skills than the field player. It's even more important to obtain quality training independently when players don't receive this kind of focus and attention during their regular practices. Players learn through instructional demos, technical activities and dynamic exercises. They also have an opportunity to apply the skills and concepts learned in game-like situations during shooting drills and scrimmages.

Benefits

  • Improves technical skills such as diving, shot-stopping, positioning, punting, throwing, and more.
  • Develops cognitive skills such as hand/high coordination, reflexes, and quick reaction.
  • Teaches handling high balls, stopping breakaways, and proper positioning.
  • Enhances physical skills such as flexibility, agility, jumping, quick footwork, and more.
  • Develops leadership skills and improve communication with defenders.

All players will receive a Golden Boot Soccer t-shirt! It's our way of counting down to the kickoff of our 20th anniversary season in 2018.
