Are you looking to outshine all of your competition at High School soccer tryouts?Undoubtedly, high school tryouts are always a high pressure situation.  With preparation, you can take all of the pressure off your shoulders, and go into your tryouts confident, focused, and prepared.  Through repetition and hardwork, Golden Boot Soccer’s high school prep program is designed to give every player the work ethic and technical ability required to perform to the best of their ability at the high school level.

Golden Boot will help your athlete: 

  • Be in peak shape entering the upcoming high school season.  (Coaches do not take players that are out of shape seriously. Being “fit” is half the battle for a good tryout.)
  • Improve and/or refine your technical skills. (Whether dribbling, passing, or shooting, our aim is to help every player perform as good or better than their competition.)
  • Stand out to impress the coaches. (Coaches are always looking for that “diamond in the rough.” Whether it’s scoring goals, making great passes, or being a standout defender, all can contribute to a great tryout.)

High School Prep is designed to allow your child to refine all of the technical skills (dribbling, passing, and shooting) that are needed to play at the high school level.  Also, players will go through rigorous conditioning (agility, speed, and endurance) to get them into peak shape entering their tryout.

Invite Only.  Players ages 13-17 currently rostered on a D1 WAGS or NCSL team, Boys Academy, ECNL or Region 1 team may participate without an invite.  Please contact Christine Flores at christine.flores@goldenbootsoccer.com with your players name, age and team name for more information.

Cognitive Training for Goalies focusing on Reaction Time

GK-Reaction is just one of a line-up of Golden Boot Soccer's new cognitive athletic training programs.  A goalies ability to divide their visual attention and track multiple objects is a skill and a requirement for elite athletes.  The better a goalie can track multiple quick and complicated movements simultaneously, the lower their reaction will become and the faster their decision making.

GK-Reaction is a unique training program that focuses primarily on helping players improve reaction time by teaching keepers to execute complex movements while increasing their perceptual-cognitive abilities with vision perception training.  This is accomplished in drill or game style scenarios with an added cognitive challenge.

In a sport where split second timing can make all the difference, exceptional visual skills are a must.  Because of this, cognitive training for enhanced visual processing is the key factor that allows good athletes to become exceptional.

If you could train yourself to react and make decisions faster, why wouldn't you?

As the last line of defense and the first step to an effective attack, goalkeepers must possess a unique set of technical, mental, and physical skills compared to those of a field player.  The goalkeeper must be able to make split-second decisions that will affect the outcome of the game, while under pressure and evaluating multiple visual cues.  Because the margin of error is so thin, goalkeepers must have the mental constitution to handle this pressure and that constitution comes from quality training so the goalkeeper can feel confident in their abilities.

 

  • The mechanics of catching the ball
  • Deflecting the ball around the goal
  • Footwork (allowing players to move their bodies to the proper position to receive the ball)
  • Proper positioning allowing the keeper to cover the largest portion of the goal possible
  • Diving
  • Properly distributing a ball after a save
  • Safety
  • Goal Kicks
  • Leadership Skills

Improving athletic performance and soccer success through Neuro Soccer - Cognitive Soccer Training.

"Training the brain in a cognitive development sports specific environment might just be the biggest breakthrough in improving sports performance EVER"  Marcus DiBernardo, author of "The Sports Brain"

In the midst of the game, a player's brain is accomplishing the incredible feats of multitasking - moving, tracking, anticipating, timing, strategizing, reacting and executing. The soccer development industry can't seem to keep up with the growing number of studies that show cognitive soccer training is effective, necessary and can be accomplished through integrating cognitive elements into the traditional tactical and technical training that players receive, beginning as early as 8 or 9 years old.

Golden Boot Soccer is the only training company in Northern Virginia offering this type of training. All of our new Neuro Soccer programs offer specially designed curriculum to allow players to practice and develop technical skills at the same time as they are developing the crucial cognitive skills to effectively put them 3 steps ahead of their opponents who are only receiving traditional technical training. Golden Boot Soccer Neuro Soccer students practice:

  • Interpreting visual, auditory and tactile cues
  • Multiple Object Tracking
  • Active Scanning for Rapid Decision Making
  • Multiplied Focus of Attention
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Expanded Peripheral Vision

Do you want your child to be the one waiting for the game to slow down so their brains can process all of the moving elements? Or, can you see your child as the pace setter, executing skills, making decisions and processing information at a pace that technically trained opponents simply cannot comprehend!

The Golden Boot Award is the most prestigious goal scoring award. Although we cannot promise that our participants will all be recipients of the Golden Boot Award, we can ensure that they will improve their offensive skills and their ability to score goals.  The Art of Scoring Goals focuses on finishing and striking techniques and on how to create scoring opportunities. 


Players learn how to think as goal scorers and make smart decisions under pressure. The program teaches players individual offensive skills and how to play a significant role in their teams’ offensive play. Players apply the concepts learned in offensive games and exercises including scrimmages and mini tournaments.

Agility and coordination are the foundation of success in soccer.

Motoric Coordination from Golden Boot Soccer provides targeted training designed for learning, controlling and executing movements related to the game. Players develop the ability to learn and execute new techniques quickly, and adjust those techniques in an instant, allowing players to easily control their movements when they have to react quickly, under pressure from an opponent, or in tight situations.

Motoric Coordination from Golden Boot Soccer includes motor skills and coordination exercises with the soccer ball and other agility tools to create a motor system overload, allowing the young players nervous system to adjust and adapt to challenging environments. Our Motoric Coordination program is one part of an overall training program that includes NeuroSoccer - Cognitive Training for Soccer for quick reactions and decision making and our new Golden Boot Soccer Academy to allow individual focus on advanced technical aspects of the game. These 3 programs combined have been carefully designed to develop the all-around soccer athlete with a noticeable advantage in skill, reaction time, decision making and execution.

NeuroSoccer is a cognitive coaching technique that is added to the traditional emphasis on technical skills and physical fitness.  Soccer is a cognitive sport so it is crucial for the advanced player to develop their brain as well as their body.  NeuroSoccer training techniques force the players' brains to constantly multitask so that in-game decision making can keep up with the pace of the game.  This is done by constantly presenting new activities that players are not used to doing, as opposed to repeated exercises that allow the brain to think it knows the answers.


Constantly challenging the brain makes use of its plasticity by creating new connections for each new challenge it picks up on.  This allows players to develop technical skills & and agility while also developing high levels of perception, peripheral sight and split vision to allow a player to continuously execute game time actions at very high speed. 

Travel players only. - Space is very limited.
