"I had so much fun at the GK training event this week! I really enjoyed the training sessions and it was a great experience to work with Coach Sam and some of the 2018-19 Lady Bulldogs. I loved the competitive environment and felt like I learned so much while I was there." - Kimberley Polk, 2022
"This was just what the doctor ordered" - Parent of 04 Male Goalkeeper
"Sam Raper is a very informative, organized, and knowledgeable GK coach. I found the sessions to be helpful on a physical and intellectual level as we were taught how to think through each drill and save. As our trainings were recorded, I found the video analysis to be helpful as it made it easier to think about and execute each technical aspect of the day. I appreciate his attention to detail and look forward to training with him in the future." - Tori Long, 2021
"We would just like to thank Coach Sam, staff and all who were involved with girls GK training event this week! My daughter had the best time and she is already ready to come back. Again, thank you for all the effort that you all put into it too make it such an enjoyable experience! " - Ned & Tammy Polk
