This extended program runs in coordination with our WISA Women's Adidas Showcase Camp.
Goalkeepers who sign up for this extended program come in early for the showcase in order to train and sharpen prior to performing in front of college coaches during the showcase. It also allows college coaches in attendance an opportunity to watch the goalkeepers a few days in training before everyone gets in to train and play. The sessions are focused on both technical work and tactical decisions of the goalkeeper position. The extended program dates for 2017 are July 13th thru July 16th, on the 16th the GK's will join the Showcase campers and continue until the 20th. Cost: $800 if you register by February 28th 2017. March 1, 2017 the price will increase to $875 (Extended GK portion + Showcase)

The WISA Adidas Goalkeeper Academy is designed for high school freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors with college playing aspirations. The goalkeepers will also undergo Tactical Training, which prepares players for the rigor of pre-season training and equips the player with the tools to meet the expectations of college coaches in game situations.
The goalkeepers are under the supervision of a college goalkeeper coach in a detailed training program which is used by successful college soccer teams. Unlike other camps, the goalkeepers are assigned to teams in the afternoon and evenings, and play in full sided 11v11 games. This allows them to showcase their talents to college coaches on site.
WISA offers an extended goalkeeper program in which the goalkeepers come in early (prior to the start of the showcase) and train with college goalkeeper coaches. The idea behind this is to get goalkeepers feeling good and looking sharp before having to work in front of the dozens of college coaches that will be there for the showcase. In Beta testing, the goalkeepers that came in prior to showcase looked sharper with their footwork and handling and looked more comfortable on the ball, than the goalkeepers that just came in for the WISA Women's Adidas College Showcase. More information can be found on the Extended Goalkeeper Program page under the Men's Adidas College Showcase tab.
