Goalkeeping training is under the supervision of Paul Barron (PB), former English Premier League goalkeeper and coach, and Marcus Hahnmann, former EPL, USMNT and Seattle Sounders FC goalkeeper.
Training consists of comprehensive goalkeeping sessions, covering the fundamentals of shot-stopping, positioning, footwork, handling, distributing, crosses, and breakaways. Tactics include situational play, game preparation, communication, and environmental conditions.
Goalkeepers ages 12 – 17 have two options for specialized training:
- World Class Goalkeeping Week
- Elite Week
NOTE: In the Future Stars program, “goalkeeper” training is provided via the “rotation” method whereby each child is afforded an opportunity to play every position.
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 them gain the highest levels of play.
