Luis Santos Zanelli

Luis is also one of the official scouts for the Peruvian national soccer federation.

We are looking to add an additional 2 goalkeeper coaches to this already amazing roster of professionals.

The role of the goalkeeper has evolved more than any other role on the field and it has drastically. Goalkeepers in today’s soccer react a lot faster and deal with constant ball direction changes . To effectively adapt to these changes, Goalkeeper Gloves absorbent foam and specific 4mm German Latex for a quality grip have become more important than ever. The ability to get a fingertip touch on the ball and divert it away from the net has become vital. We will be handing out at our camp gloves that have these specs!

The 3 day training curriculum is not joke! It’s hard work… Yes, the keepers will have a lot of fun, but they’ll go home on December 30th with a huge package of “Goalkeeper-Intel” to take back to the gameday field.
Lot’s of new drills are being selected to use at this goalkeeper camp and we’ll be introducing everything the Modern Goalkeeper needs so that they tweak their goalkeeping.


The Academy administration is taking the Covid-19 pandemic very seriously and is following the CDC Considerations for Events and Gatherings by the book. At this time the State of Florida has one of the lowest infection rates in the country, but this is no excuse to lower our guard. The safety of our students, their families and our coaching staff is our priority.

Every morning prior to the camp session each student will have a temperature check. The students goalkeeper gloves will be disinfected with a “Safe” bio-chemical spray several times during the sessions. Students will not need to wear masks, however, social distancing will be enforced as much as possible.

Parents that desire to enter the training fields to take videos or photographs will have to wear a mask at all times.

Coach ratio is no larger than 8:1 (no more than 8 students per coach).
Because of the very low ratio player/coach your child will receive a LOT more attention to detailing, keepers will get more ball touches and saves under the VERY CLOSE attention of the coaches. We’re going to make this camp more like a week long private session!!

THE GOOD THING ABOUT OUR GOALKEEPER CAMPS IS THAT, AS ALWAYS, ALL CAMPERS WILL RECEIVE A PAIR OF ZEE PROFESSIONAL GOALKEEPER GLOVES (PALMS WITH 4 MM GERMAN CONTACT LATEX – THE BEST LATEX ON THE MARKET) AND A ZEE SOCCER ACADEMY TRAINING JERSEY.
