This 2016/2017 Winter Training program includes Goalkeeper training. Each of our 2017 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.
All sessions will be lead by Kyle Meyers. Kyle grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota and spent a large portion of his youth soccer career playing goalkeeper for the St. Paul Blackhawks at multiple levels. While playing for Blackhawks, he had the opportunity to play in tournaments in Piteå, Sweden and Stockholm, Sweden in which I was able to train with and learn from local youth soccer clubs there. Outside of club soccer Kyle played goalkeeper for Hill-Murray High School at the JV level for 1 year and at the varsity level for 3 years. Most recently, Kyle has begun his coaching career with Bloomington United where he has been assisting with the goalkeeper program for several years prior to taking over the program this fall.
