In Association with West Coast Goalkeeping, The Goalkeeper Academy proudly presents its first ever Goalie Wars. The game is fun, exciting, strategic and great for cardiovascular fitness. Each goalkeeper is guaranteed (3) 4min games with a possible final. The tournament is for both Boys and Girls, ages U9-College. The tournament allows goalkeepers to demonstrate their talents while testing their physical and mental limits.

The Goalkeeper Academy would like to invite you to our first Goalie Wars Tournament. Goalie Wars is a 1v1 tournament specifically made to showcase a goalkeeper’s individualistic talents. Goalkeepers battle against one another while using various forms of distribution and shot stopping techniques. Each goalkeeper plays on one half of the field defending a goal, while trying to score on the opposing goalkeeper.

The Goalkeeper Academy recognizes that a specialized position requires specialized training. For players to reach their potential they need to be placed in a Complete Learning Environment. Different goalkeepers require different training. The Goalkeeper Academy offers its students a scientific and holistic approach to training.

As goalkeepers start out on their playing career, they require nurturing, and an understanding of not only how to play this specialized position, but how to deal with the developmental aspects of being a Goalkeeper. As they grow, their needs expand, and learning drills, and shot-stopping is not enough. Physical, technical, tactical training alongside the mental and psychological science of goalkeeping over time is required to reach their maximum potential.

Goalkeepers play at many different levels, and it is important that the players and parents recognize this. Most will play youth soccer, some High School. A few will extend their career and play in College, while a handful will be fortunate enough to play professionally.

The Goalkeeper Academy Complete Learning Environment encompasses every aspect of training, and offers programs based on the necessary developmental pathway for its players to truly reach their potential.
