TO WHOM THIS CAMP SESSION IS INTENDED?
The Advanced Goalkeeper program is for highly motivated girls and boys age 14 and up who are striving to reach a high level of play. Modeled after the Goalkeeper training programs of Professional Clubs in Europe, the LPSC Advanced Goalkeeper Session provides keepers with the opportunity to train at an intense level. It overlaps with the LPSC Premier/ Advanced Field Player Session so match play is very intense and features end to end action. The technical, tactical, physical and psychological elements of goalkeeping are explored during camp.
Graduates of our program have gone on to play at the professional and international level and include Greg Sutton, A-League Keeper of the Year in ‘03,’04, 06, A- League MVP 2004.
If your goal is to reach a higher level of play and see first hand what is required to succeed at the highest levels of the game, this LPSC Advanced Goalkeeper Session is for you!
