  • Help develop attacking players and goalkeepers to focus on very specific skills necessary to push their game to a higher level.
  • Special emphasis on proper technique, repetition, and mental focus.  
  • Leave the program with very specific exercises which they can apply to their individual training routines to help advance their off-season development. 
  • A curriculum carefully crafted to help build skills for each position
  • “Feedback loops” where players can hone their technique on their own between sessions and then have the opportunity to revisit skills and exercises in the next session to evaluate progress.

GOALKEEPER PROGRAM

Forging Soccer Players Since 2002

SOCCERSMITH 

The keeper training program foundation is built upon the fundamentals of goalkeeping which begin with body shape & footwork but also include an understanding  of positioning and angles.   In addition we will build upon that foundation to address the more physical skills of position including diving & explosive takeoffs and catching & handling.  Finally, the more advanced but essential techniques of communication, distribution, and handling crosses will be addressed.  Each training session will end with some version of a small-sided game or tournament designed to allow a chance for live shooting as well as facing game-like pressure and shooting.  Since training is only one night a week, the expectation is that participants will take time between sessions to review and practice the exercises between each session. 

 

STRIKER PROGRAM

The striker training program foundation is built upon the repetition and mastery of two-touch finishes, one-touch finishes, and shooting from beyond the 18-yard box.  In addition we will build upon that foundation to address more complex concepts such as creating space to shoot, playing with your back to the goal, making appropriate runs, winning 1v1s and finishing breakaways.  Each training session will end with some version of a small-sided game or tournament designed to allow a chance for live shooting on a real goalkeeper as well as finishing under game-like pressure and circumstances.  Since the training is only one night a week, the expectation is that participants will take time between sessions to review and practice the exercises between each session.
