Filling the void in goalie training by teaming up with clubs for clinics and camps, and running weekly goalkeeper acadamies.

Just4Keepers of Washington has been established by director Stephen Swanger, to fill a void in goalkeeper training in the state. Often times, keepers are the most overlooked position when it comes to regular team training. Soccer coaches often just don’t have the time or experience to work to develop their keepers as you might a field player. It is for this very reason that we founded J4K of Washington in partnership with the Just 4 Keepers | Goalkeeper coaching around the world organization.
