Goalkeeper Training Offered

This 2015/2016 Winter Training program includes Goalkeeper training. Each of our 2016 traveling teams will share the cost of this training so those goalkeepers or players wanting to try the position will not be charged to attend as their team is already paying a share of the cost.

BYSC 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.
