With the continued evolution of the modern keeper, we believe that effective training comes from coaching the goalkeeper in several different arenas. Our training is comprised of the following areas:

  • Daily (2 sessions per day) training session with our ZPro Goalkeeper Director and certified goalkeeper coaches.
  • Goalkeeper training/coaching that is integrated with the SSA field player Academy sessions.
  • Coaching of the Goalkeeper during match games.

Our Philosophy is to teach the proper skill and technique into every training.  We also want our training to be a safe and fun environment for all of our goalies.  We believe that is important to push and challenge all of our goalkeepers no matter their age or ability. We work with our goalies on:

  • Technique/Skills:
    Diving, Footwork, Catching, Throwing, Kicking, and GK Stance
  • Physical Core:
    Balance, Speed, Strength,  Quickness, Power, and Range of Motion
  • Mental Focus:
    Being ready to play, Being aware of your surroundings, staying focused for 90 minutes, and mental toughness.
  • Tactics/Coaching/Communication:
    Organizing defense and restarts, starting position and angle of play, and decision-making in distribution.
