Philosophy and Goals:
Our goalkeeping philosophy as a club is to progressively build goalies to achieve their fullest potential. By providing everything from our u7 fundamental program all the way to our AYSL elite program we can excel in offering a catered program to each one of our amazing goalkeepers.
At our fundamental ages, our goal is to introduce players to the initial skills goalkeepers must possess. This process is completed by a fun and exciting environment for the younger age groups to all be able to experience the joys of goalkeeping.
At our elite older age groups our goal is to hone and perfect skills the older keepers already possess. With our high energy and technical adaptability, our keepers experience our highest level of training.
All our keepers in the club will create goals for themselves to have a guide of what they are striving for to improve upon and learn during the season. This will allow not only the player but the coaches to cater to the specific needs of each keeper during training.
***The sessions are mandatory for all High-performance Goal Keepers and optional for all Recreational Goal Keepers.
*** Players signup for free training through our club member zone and will then be added to Club Team Snap for all scheduling updates. This registration is live at the beginning of each season.
