Free Goalkeeper Training Offered

BYSC Goalkeeper Training

BYSC is offering free goalkeeper training for all club goalies and those who might be interested in trying the position. The goalkeeper training is a combination of strength and agility training, hand-eye and other reflex training, and plain-old defending the goal. Activities include working with medicine balls appropriate to the age and the strength of the goalie, plyometrics, goalie braziliains, distribution drills, grim games, and working on correct shot stopping and collection techniques.

Players U9-12 will train together with those U13 and older also training together. Our older goalies will also provide support for the younger players just learning the position. All sessions will be lead by club coach Tom Noonan. Tom has coached in the club since Dec 1997.  He has the USSF National D license and the NSCAA Advanced National Diploma, and 8 years of high school coaching experience.  In additon, He has attended several NSCAA Goalkeeper Coaching training courses and a variety of other seminars on the topic. Tom's goal is to not only get our players exposed to the position of goalkeeper, but to make sure the kids are prepared for the demands of the position so it isn't so much of a “shock” when they play it.
