Goalkeeper Training Program

Begins September 26 and runs every Tuesday and Wednesday at Conover Park from 6-7:30pm. The training is covered in the travel player registration for players of WWPSA. 

 

The purpose of the goalkeeper training program is to establish players foundation for basic and fundamental technical and tactical skills for the game in the goalkeeping position on-field. Our goal is to help each goalkeeper along his / her individual development pathway toward achieving their peak performance and meeting their maximum potential. 

 

Goalkeeping is a highly-specialized position and requires a unique skill-set, mindset and personality. Though we focus on the same four corners of development (technical, tactical, physical and mental) there are specialized functions we need to develop in match scenarios to help players deal with decision-making and problem-solving under high pressures. Part of a functional training environment is being integrated into team training environments which will assist in developing strong tendencies, habits and overall team cohesiveness.

 

Including but not limited to the following curriculum details: 

 

  • footwork
  • set position
  • catching
  • diving
  • crosses
  • distribution
  • decision-making
  • command of the penalty area

 

Goalkeeper training for ages 10 - 18 will be offered Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Conover Park from 6 to 7:30PM . All WWPSA travel and Mercer FC players  are eligible for the program.   Registration is required.
