Program Description

This Program focuses on the Long Term Player Development (LTPD) Stage 3: Learning to Train and Stage 4: Training to Train.

This program is reserved for goalkeepers competing with our Academy teams.  It involves at least twice weekly training with our staff and includes smaller trainer: player ratios, and a more detailed development program. 

Training will focus on technical development of each keeper, with emphasis placed on owning your area, proper diving techniques, 1v1 situations, dealing with crosses, reaction saves, effective distribution, as well as basic agility. 

Our GK staff periodically attends the games of each GK and therein works with each keeper on the tactical elements of their game, including decision making both defensively and on attack, as well as on technique during games.

Our Director of Goalkeeping, Vladan Vrsecky, is a UEFA 'A' licensed coach and holder of the highly rated UEFA 'GK' Goalkeeper coaching license.   A former youth national teams member in the Czech Republic, he has played professionally for SK Dynamo CB and FC Pisek in the Czech Republic. 

Vlad is one of the most dynamic, qualified and talented goal keeper coaches in the province, and since joining the club in 2014 has already made a massive impact on the keepers in the club.
