This will be a group comprised of female keepers fighting for a starting varsity spot or a very competitive JV goalkeeper. College bound keepers are encouraged to attend as well. Keepers will be challenged and grouped by age and ability level. We will reinforce the technical needs of goalkeepers and sharpen decision making skills through complex game situations. More sophisticated and complex training situations will be created to elevate the more advanced keeper in terms of handling, angles and positioning, footwork, collapse and grass cutter saves, deflecting vs. catching, high balls, varying breakaway situations, and communication.  Very competitive and fast paced to challenge the goalkeepers focus and sharpen decision making. Heavy emphasis on technical perfection, footwork, handling, goalkeeper conditioning, and decisiveness under pressure. teaches leadership and accountability throughout out every drill and training session.

Goalkeepers should bring at least 2 pairs of gloves, shin guards, water bottle, masks and protective base layer equipment. A small nutritious snack is also recommended. All CDC and social distancing guidelines will be adhered to.
