Goalkeeper Training – Southeastern PA

John Lenart


Why Just 4 Keepers?

I subscribe to and solely utilize the J4K program which operates as a year-round Goalie training system, utilizing the skills of all the participating goalkeepers to help each other develop.

At J4K, we stress a combinations of physical preparation along with tactical awareness, technical superiority and at last but not least psychological readiness.

By training regularly with me and the J4K program, we will reinforce the skills needed to be a successful GK. It is my belief that the GK position requires regular, consistent, and on-going training and is not a skill that can be learned and perfected in few sessions.

See you on the fields!
