The GK S.T.A.R. (Goalkeeper Summer Travel Academy Readiness) Program is designed for goalkeepers to continue their development in throughout the summer in a high-level environment. The format also recognizes that summer is for vacations and regeneration. The program provides that flexibility
GK S.T.A.R. is a 6-week program with 2-hour practices held once a week and organized as academy training for travel players to attend as their schedule permits. Each session is uniquely designed as a stand-alone training to challenge players technically and physically.
U9 - U12 = Boys / Mondays / 6 weeks
U9 - U12 = Girls / Tuesdays / 6 weeks
U13 - U16 Boys / Wednesdays / 6 weeks
U13 - U16 Girls / Thursdays / 6 weeks
The emphasis of each GK S.T.A.R. training is to develop players’ physical capacities with the modern methodology of the “GoalPlayer” by working in speed, agility, reaction, and quickness. Also, players will develop their technical capacities in foot skills, ball handling (ground and air), and dealing with shots from different angles and crosses.
Focusing on individual development over the summer will help players get ready for team play once the fall season begins!
