Goalkeeper Training

Elite Development Academy has created an exceptional Goalkeeper Program for club members.

Are you a goal keeper? There’s no extra cost. EDA keepers have the option of attending two dedicated Keeper Training Sessions each week as part of their tuition in addition to their Team Training.

EDA keepers get specialized instruction from our professional goal keeper instructor. Students get hands-on instruction and will learn the four pillars of goalkeeping: Goal Keeper Technique, Tactics, Physical Fitness, and Psychology of Goalkeeping.
