Sunday Goalkeeper Training Dates:
Our goalkeeper program will run for 8 weeks starting the week of February 6. All sessions will take place on Magnuson Field #5.
The goalkeeper program is free of charge for all 2012 and older (U11 - U19) goalkeepers who regularly play at least a half per game in goal. Program cost for the 2015 - 2013 age group is $120 and program will be prorated if players have to miss due to a game clash.
2014 - 2013 goalkeepers can register at the Paypal link above. 2012 and older goalkeepers can register by emailing our Director of Coaching Conor Walshe at email@example.com.
For age groups that we have offered multiple time slots, we'd request that a player selects one day and keeps to that schedule. For 2013-2014 goalkeepers who miss a session due to a game clash will have their program cost prorated (just email Oisin at firstname.lastname@example.org at the end of the program with the instance when this occurred).
We have limited spots available so players should only attend one session per week to ensure everyone who wishes to take part in the program can do so. Finally, we ask that goalkeepers make every effort to attend all sessions in the 8 week program in the interests of getting the most out of the training curriculum.
The Seattle Celtic goalkeeper program will focus on the four key components of the game (Technical, Tactical, Psychological, Physical) and how they relate to the goalkeeper position.
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 the warm-up and cool-down, as well as improving flexibility and co-ordination.
From a technical and tactical point of view, we will focus on four key goalkeeping roles:
1. Shot Stopping
Catching, deflecting, parrying
Saving on the move
Saving in 1 v 1 situations
2. Reading of the game
Dealing with through-balls
Dealing with crosses
Throwing and kicking techniques
Building from the back and counter-attacking
Dealing with back-passes
4.Organization of the defense
Communication during play
Communication on set-pieces
