Westfield Soccer Association

Fall 2020 Goalkeeper Training Program

The WSA provides training for U9-U14 Travel Players - at no additional charge

This program is a great opportunity to introduce young players to basic goalkeeping techniques, and to provide experienced goalkeepers with a chance to practice and to learn more advanced skills and decision-making strategies.  Our Director of Goalkeeping is Greg O'Brien.

For the safety of all of the children, training sessions are grouped by player age/year of birth, which may or may not align with their team age group.  You will only be able to register for the session(s) that correspond with your child's year of birth.
