The ZEE – Select Sports International Winter Goalkeeper Camp is a very special experience for both starter and advanced goalkeepers. Our goalkeeper school has had the pleasure of working with keepers from youth to collegiate levels from all over the United States. Because of the goalkeeper coaches working the camp this truly will be a unique and an amazing experience for all the goalkeepers involved.
The camp is for all goalkeeper ages 8 to 18, for looking to improve their skill set and their tactical and positional knowledge. Our top goalkeeper coaches will be working with the campers to ensure that the training will be challenging, cutting edge and most of all informative.
Goalkeepers: Each of the 3 days of camp, we will introduce and improve on a new technical component that is a “MUST” for the modern day goalkeeper. These skill sets include, specific GK footwork, positional play, ball handling, re-distribution, shot-stopping and split second decision making. A strong psychological component that will build confidence and communication in keepers of all ages.
