Goalkeepers will be taught the techniques, positioning, and decision-making processes of dealing with high balls, dealing with balls in behind the back line (thru balls & back passes), shot-stopping, and goalkeeping as the 1st Attacker – goal kicks, punts, passing/receiving, etc. Goalkeepers will have to play with their feet and help build the attack in small-sided games and match play as well as be exposed to managing the restraining line, crosses, and re-starts in large-sided games. Keepers will be prompted to read the game and use their voice to organize and command their team. GK camp activities and games will be used to apply all of the above while also creating a competitive AND supportive environment amongst those in attendance. Players will be grouped by age and ability. GKs will integrate with field players for match play and other competitions. Throw in a Pool Party and “Bama’s Got Talent”, and you have the ultimate camp experience on one of the most beautiful campuses in the South.
