Goalkeeper Training||Staff and Calendar

The Michigan Wolves-Hawks Soccer Club understands the importance of quality goalkeeping and offers enhanced training methods specifically for this purpose. In addition to regular team training and practice, we provide Technical Goalkeeping Sessions in the Fall, Winter and Spring Seasons with emphasis on developing and improving the Keeper's Individual Skill Set. Our goalkeeper coaches head up our technical sessions with specific exercises designed to improve the Keeper's decision making, communication, management skills and their mental approach to the game. They also regularly attend team sessions and matches to evaluate our goalkeepers' individual performance to identify every opportunity to improve their skills using these technical sessions.
