CCS Goalkeeper Academy - July 15th-August 12th, 2018 - SUNDAYS

Program Overview

Solid goalkeeping is the foundation of every successful team at virtually any age.  To put it simply, if your goalkeeper plays an exceptional game, your team always has a chance to earn the win.  

CCS's Goalkeeper Academy is a targeted program for goalkeepers ages 8-14 who want to learn the fundamentals, skills, strategies, and techniques to improve as a game manager, athlete, and protector of the goal.

The Academy takes a comprehensive approach to understanding the goalkeeping position.  Our goalkeeper coaches focus the player on several key elements of successful goalkeeping, while identifying strengths and weakness of each player and offering ‘take-home’ drills to continue their development.  Areas of focus include:

  • Understanding proper positioning throughout the course of the game
  • Short range shot stopping, including perfecting the 'set position' to save any shot
  • Managing your field players with proper communication of defensive strategy
  • Becoming an option for the back pass to help your team maintain control of the ball
  • Skills to properly distribute the ball, from goal kicks and foot passes, to rolls, 'over-arm' throws, half-volleys
    and punts
  • Handling crosses, both short and deep, as well as corner kicks and free kicks within shooting range
  • Proper physical fitness and targeted training to enhance your athletic ability
  • Drills and techniques to practice following the Academy, to keep your skills fresh!


The CCS Goalkeeper Academy costs $140.00 for the five week session. For additional information on the CCS Goalkeeper Academy, please contact CCS Director of Operations, Andrew Storton, at 203-901-5879 or andrew@ctcoastsoccer.com
