2013-2014 Friday Night Goalkeeper Clinic - Open to All GK's from any Club

Winter Training for Goalkeepers at all levels

by Paul O'Connor, Director of Goalkeeper Training for PSA 
 
FACT: Goalkeeper is a specialized position requiring specialized training. 
FACT: Many team coaches are not experienced in training and developing goalkeepers. 

“Stand in goal for this drill” is not an effective learning tool! This Goalkeeper training session offers:

  • high-tempo sessions - - better footwork specific to goalkeeping 
  • learn competent ball handling skills - - better positional sense 
  • challenging, age-appropriate training - - proper form & technique 
  • gain confidence in goalkeeping ability - - which translates into fewer goals conceded! 

Choose one or attend all three six-session blocks. 
All sessions are held on Friday evenings at the Plymouth Creek Center Fieldhouse, 14800 34th Avenue, Plymouth MN 55447
