GOALKEEPER TRAINING: All training is cancelled for Tuesday. Nothing at Alliance, North, or Carl Cowan. We hope to see you tomorrow.





FC Alliance has an energetic staff of experienced goalkeeper coaches ready to help you take your game to the next level. Our staff now includes five former collegiate goalkeepers and we often offer guest sessions led by college coaches and current / former pro keepers. Please check the website regularly for updates on special sessions.  


There is NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE to attend these sessions for club members; and non-club members can attend for a small fee, with permission from their club director, if applicable (email Hemant for details). 


Topics covered at our sessions will include every aspect of being a successful goalkeeper, including: ready position, catching, breakaways, crosses, footwork, punting, goal kicks, throwing, communication and more. Coaches are now incorporating video analysis into nearly every sessions, as well.


For a brief overview of topics and key points, please consult the training manual PDF located on the left side of the Keeper Page.  This page is updated daily with information about weather and time changes--as well as tips arising from training sessions.  So bookmark this page!!
