Striker & Goalkeeper Camp
June 20-23 at Classics Soccer Park & July 5-8 at Spooky Nook Sports
 
Strikers will work on all aspects of scoring goals. First half hour each day, the warm up will be solely technical for skills sharpening: from the proper technique of striking a soccer ball with different surfaces, to timing runs in the box, volleys, headers, and the anticipation of second chances. Repetition with and without pressure will be the philosophy. This type of training environment will help improve each player’s confidence in front of the goal, which is an important psychological factor to mold the efficient goal scorer. Each day will end with game situations with goalkeepers in goal.

Goalkeepers will work many aspects of their position including both the physical (fast footwork, agility, strength), as well as proper techniques (catching, punching, angle play and decision making). Pressure and game like situations to conclude each day.
