Last fall (2014) our new Director of Coaching (U4-U12), Charles Lindsey, organized a 3-session Goalkeeper Academy that spanned a good portion of the fall 2014 season. The outstanding success of this Academy has refueled the demand for more keeper-specific training in our Club.
This year, SPSC's Director of Coaching (U13+), Mike McIntosh, has organized a two-day Goalkeeper Coaching Clinic in July through the National Soccer Coaching Association of America (NSCAA). At least 5 coaches from SPSC are scheduled to attend this 2-day clinic on training keepers. The Club's intent is to have a number of SPSC coaches trained so that we can continue to expand our goalkeeper offerings on a regular basis. Families can expect Goalkeeper Academies to be a regular offering in both the fall and spring seasons. The Club will also explore the demand for and feasibility of providing a summer Goalkeeper Academy perhaps as soon as summer of 2016.
