J4K August New Jersey Camp
Friday August 9th & Saturday August 10th 4:00 – 8:00pm
Patriots Park Jackson NJ
Just4Keepers Academy is hosting a two-day goalkeeper Pre-Season Camp in Jackson NJ on August 9th & 10th 4:00 – 8:00pm. Goalkeepers will be put through two extensive detail and fun training sessions, in which they will receive instruction on every aspect of the game; the technical, tactical, mental, and physical parts needed to be successful, will all be covered. Throughout the session, goalkeepers will not only learn the proper techniques of catching, diving, collecting crosses, and distribution, but also the mental side of the game.
Goalkeeping is a very specialized position that requires great technique and attention to detail. Attention to detail and sound fundamentals is whatJ4K does. By attending a J4K camp a goalkeeper learns how to pay attention to the little details, fundamentals and become aware of the fine points in executing proper fundamentals that can make a huge difference in one’s game.
Positioning is one of the things that separate the Pros from all the rest. While a keeper may make an awesome flying through the air save and have everyone cheering wild, a professional keeper will make that save look ordinary instead just by being properly positioned therefore not having to fly through the air. Why is that important? Not having to make that flying save, it will increase the chance of securing the ball, not giving up a rebound and also protecting the keeper’s body from an injury.
During the classroom portion of the camp, which will include a question, and answer session, goalkeepers will learn about leadership, communication, organization, mental strength, and the dedication it takes to get to the highest level of the game.
