Goalkeeper Training Program


The purpose of the goalkeeper training program is to establish players foundation for basic and fundamental technical and tactical skills for the game in the goalkeeping position on-field. Our goal is to help each goalkeeper along his / her individual development pathway toward achieving their peak performance and meeting their maximum potential. 


Goalkeeping is a highly-specialized position and requires a unique skill-set, mindset and personality. Though we focus on the same four corners of development (technical, tactical, physical and mental) there are specialized functions we need to develop in match scenarios to help players deal with decision-making and problem-solving under high pressures. Part of a functional training environment is being integrated into team training environments which will assist in developing strong tendencies, habits and overall team cohesiveness.


Including but not limited to the following curriculum details: 


  • footwork
  • set position
  • catching
  • diving
  • crosses
  • distribution
  • decision-making
  • command of the penalty area
  • communication


Goalkeeper training for ages 8-18 will be offered Wednesday (Duck Pond Park) and Thursday(Plainsboro Community Park) from 6 to 7:30PM . All WWPSA travel and GPS Mercer  players  are eligible for the program.   Registration is required.
