Goal Keeper Program

The purpose of the VYS Goalkeeping program is to further develop Goalkeepers with the optimal set of skills and techniques.  We want to teach and train them so they hit personal/team/club goals.  If their goal is to play in college, we work to help prepare them to play on a college level.  We use trusted methods to aid the development of each Goalkeeper.  As coaches, we facilitate the learning process by placing the Goalkeepers in functional environments as well as technical training sessions with high volumes of repetitions.
