Due to ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic we have adjusted our programming under the guidance of the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the CDC to allow for the safest and lowest risk environment for our players and coaches.
Goalkeepers can register for goalkeeper training through our Pro-Skillz training program. All training this summer will be set in groups of 10 or less (9 players per group maximum) and will embrace social distancing guidelines for maximum player safety.
As we launch our new scheduling system with Upper Hand, Inc., please create an account and choose the training schedule that fits your needs!

The short answer is NO. All goalkeeper training is curriculum based and tailor made to meet players where they are at, challenge them, and end each day in game-like situations and competitive game play to maximize player development. All training is age-appropriate. Players will be challenged accordingly.
