The Striker and Goalkeeper camp are an intense three days of specialized training for serious soccer players looking to improve dramatically at their position. Pairing strikers and goalkeepers together in the same camp environment enables each player to receive the amount of challenging repetitions needed around the goal to become more comfortable handling crucial plays successfully.

STRIKERS will be put through a challenging curriculum dedicated to the art of creating and scoring goals. This camp is a great opportunity for players to improve their technique, offensive skills in the attacking third, passing, dribbling, shooting, and scoring from crosses, volleys, and headers.

GOALKEEPERS will be put through a competitive program focused on shot stopping, saving crosses, proper footwork and decision making. Players will also learn to read the game through match situations. They will be given individual attention from select goalkeeper coaches chosen by
