Attention Goalkeepers! ASA offers goalkeeper training to all recreational goalkeepers who have an interest in playing the position! Instruction will include basic GK fundamentals, such as handling, footwork, distribution and shot-stopping techniques. We offer both free and paid training options for grades 3-8, depending on the type of instruction you are looking for:
Free Rec Soccer GK Clinics (3rd through 6th grade) – These clinics are available for 3rd through 6th grade rec players who have an interest in learning more about the position.
