Goalkeeping is a unique position in the game of soccer and requires specialized training to develop the goalkeeping set of skills. To be effective in the position, goalkeepers need self confidence and toughness to be the team’s last line of defense and first point of attack, and need to be well trained technically and tactically to integrate into the team’s defense. The goalkeeper is the leader and communicator. The design of Soccer Academy’s goalkeeper training will develop goalkeepers to be better decision makers. The program is designed to be progressive based upon the age, ability and experience of the individual goalkeeper.
