A physical workout is incorporated into each 60 minute session.

Successful goalkeepers are creatures of habit, perfecting their style through diligent training and thousands of repetitions. This preparation allows them to react instinctively, performing with a clear mind and the single focus of stopping the ball during games.
Achieving this state of readiness and producing confident, consistent and technically sound soccer goalkeepers is our goal.
