Northwest Soccer Camp is proud to offer quality resident and day camp goalkeeper training every week of our summer season for goalkeepers; ages 12-17 Weeks 1 through 3, ages 10-17 Week 4, and ages 10-15 Weeks 5 and 6. Please note, however, that World Class Goalkeeping is offered Week 2 (July 5 – 10) — the only time Paul Barron is available.
Goalkeeping training is directed by Paul Barron (PB), former professional goalkeeper for 15 seasons in the English Premier League. Training consists of comprehensive goalkeeping sessions, covering the basic fundamentals of shot-stopping, positioning, footwork, handling, distributing, crosses, and breakaways. Tactics include situational play, game preparation, communication, and environmental conditions.
Field Player Finishing School focuses on attacking in the final third. Training includes small-sided exercises on the art of attacking, finishing, and scoring–competing against those being trained at the highest level in the art of goalkeeping. During Week 2 (World Class Goalkeeping) and Week 3 (Elite week) training is for players ages 12-17.
The serious soccer player seeks the kind of curriculum developed, taught and demonstrated by NSC’s senior staff and specialty coaches. Messages from hundreds of former campers confirm that these programs were critical in helping gain the highest levels of play.
