Goalkeeper Training

Join Hartford Athletic’s and Soccer Club of Newington’s George Kostelis for a summer-long Goalkeeper Academy!

Training sessions will emphasize developing proper technique and the physical skills needed to be an effective goalkeeper. 
Based on the topics trained, the sessions will implement tactical and psychological implications to stimulate and challenge goalkeepers to make decisions. From being the first line of attack to the last line of defense, greater emphasis is placed on becoming a player who understands and can execute the modern demands of goalkeeping.  

Topics Covered: How and when to Set, Basic Handling, Positioning, Angle Play, Diving, Tipping Over the Bar, Dealing with Crosses, Breakaway Technique & Tactics, Training the Back Pass, Distribution/Initiating the Attack, Boxing: One & Two Hands, Footwork, Interval/Pressure Training & Penalty Kicks.
