Training can be conducted in three or four one hour sessions. The sessions will be broken down based on age and ability. The oldest age groups (under 18’s through under 16’s) will have the opportunity to learn to train younger goalkeepers to hone their own skills and learn how to run a training clinic while away at college or a future in goalkeeper training.
