Goalkeeper Training (Ages 8-14)

Each player will receive a Golden Boot Soccer t-shirt. It's our way of celebrating more than 20 years connecting young players with the beautiful game. Classes will be held at the JCC of Northern Virginia, 8900 Little River Turnpike in Fairfax.

When a program is full, we start a waitlist. If you are interested in a full class, we encourage you to register for the waitlist, as spots may open up or a new section may be created. If we are unable to accommodate your player, we will issue a full refund of your registration fee.

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.
