OSU Force Academy Goalkeeper COE
The “GOLD STANDARD” in Goalkeeper Development
     

                   


Goalkeeper Centre of Excellence coaches David Bellemare and Aaron Falsetto bring a wealth of knowledge and experience with them having developed goalkeepers for provincial programs, National teams and University programs. 

For players who aspire to be a goalkeeper and players who are wanting to try a different position, this program is an excellent chance to master or learn all the required skills. Goalkeeping is known as one of the most technically difficult positions on the soccer field, so we feel it is vital for our goalkeepers to have that extra attention to help them learn the correct techniques. 

Goalkeepers will work through the fundamental skills of the position: agility and footwork, positioning, shot stopping, catching, diving, and distribution (both throwing and kicking). As part of the key skills players will hopefully come to understand the tactical side to being a GK and learn to command the box! 

Sessions will include the latest in technical and tactical methodologies as well as the latest equipment to develop the goalkeepers in the program.
