The past 2 years I have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to be the Goalkeeping Coach for the Rochester Rhinos of the USL. The Rhinos have a great history of producing elite level professional goalkeepers over the years; Having had 3 of the last 4 Goalkeepers of the Year in the USL.
During this time I have continued to work with Goalkeepers of all levels, from U8’s all the way thru to NCAA College Goalkeepers. Coaching Gk’s is truly the best job in the world; having the chance to get to know each one of them personally and help them achieve their individual goals is the most rewarding experience I have had professionally.
While coaching here at Just4Keepers NY I have come across students who have goals as simple as making a JV roster to students who have ambitions to play for the US National Team. And I tell every single one of them the exact same thing; Work Hard, Focus on becoming better every single session, Dedicate yourself to the position, Practice Regularly and Believe in yourself. Regardless of age and ability, if a Goalkeeper sticks to these guidelines they will get continue to improve.
During these Blogs I will give my opinion on all things goalkeeping, from the Technical, Tactical, Physical and Mental aspects of the game to my opinion on the latest goalkeeping gloves and apparel. Follow Just4Keepers NY on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on whats happening, and if you have any questions or feedback feel free to reach out to me and I will gladly discuss it here!
I look froward to connecting with you all, best of Goalkeeping.
