Fall 2017 Goalkeeper Training Program

The WSA provides training for U9-U15 Travel and Intercounty players at no additional charge

This program is a great opportunity to introduce young players to basic goalkeeping techniques, and to provide experienced goalplayers with a chance to practice and to learn more advanced skills and decision-making strategies.  For the resume of our Technical Director of Goalkeeping, Greg O'Brien, click here.
