GOAL KEEPER TRAINING PROGRAM

PBG Goalkeeping Program Overview 

For the 2019-2020 season we are excited to continue to restructure and improve our goalkeeper program for all ages and all levels at Palm Beach Predators. With our new Director of Goalkeeping, and support coaches we now have the ability to offer a truly unique, goalkeeper centered, learning environment to help enhance goalkeepers of all age. With specific DPL, ECNL, 7v7 travel, 9v9 travel and 11v11 travel sessions, this allows for small groups and high individual attention to detail for each goalkeeper training with one of our coaches at minimum twice a week. Our team is made up of former goalkeepers who have played at minimum college level, who know the position inside and out, and know what it takes to develop into a great all-round goalkeeper. 

This year we will be introducing goalkeeper video analysis for DPL and ECNL, match reports, classroom sessions and more to help goalkeepers develop through not only physical sessions but also through theory and study. 

Below is a breakdown of how each session will be focused dependent on age and stage of development:
