Cincinnati United Premier (CUP)

GK Training Overview


Club goalkeeper training will occur on a regular basis throughout the year (Fall, Winter, and Spring). The frequency and duration of the training is determined by what the Premier Program Director of Goalkeeping feels is necessary to provide the best goalkeeper training in Region II.

Moreover, goalkeeper training is encouraged to be intertwined with team training. The communication of training times and locations is the responsibility of the Premier Program Director of Goalkeeping.

On average, goalkeeper training will occur once a week. The cost of goalkeeper training will be within the club fee.



*note: when the hotline is not updated, training is on, unless otherwise notified.
