WFC Youth are delighted to announce our Fall Goalkeeper Academy. This opportunity is FREE to WFC Youth goalies but open to any goalkeeper who is a US Club Soccer member. Our goalkeeper program will run on Wednesdays for 6 weeks starting the week of September 14th and ending on October 19th. This program will focus on the four key components of the game (Technical, Tactical, Psychological, Physical) and how they relate to the goalkeeper position coached by our GK director Jenn Ouellet.

 

From a psychological standpoint, developing good self-confidence and an ability to handle pressure will be some of the areas focussed on. The Physical component of the training will look at the importance of the warm-up and cool-down, as well as improving flexibility and coordination. 

 

This Academy is for 2008 birth year goalkeepers and younger.

Sessions include

  • Shot Stopping  
  • Catching, deflecting, parrying
  • Positioning
  • Saving on the move
