This extended program runs in coordination with our WISA Men's Puma Showcase Camp.
This camp is for 2023-2025 high school graduates. 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 2022 are July 14th- July 21st, 2022, on the 17th, the goalkeepers are joined by the Showcase Campers and continue until the 21st of July.
If the dates of the camp conflict please contact Coach Aksel Juul at firstname.lastname@example.org and discuss the other GK camp opportunities and dates that are available.

The WISA Puma Extended Goalkeeper Showcase is designed for high school juniors and seniors with college playing aspirations. The goalkeepers will also undergo a training program 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.
On the field, goalkeepers are under constant supervision of a college goalkeeper coach in a technical, tactical, physical and psycho-social training environment which is used by successful college soccer teams. This program allows goalkeepers to come in prior to the start of the main showcase and train with Wingate's goalkeeper coaches, as well as other 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 the main 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 Men's Puma College Showcase. Unlike other camps, within the second part of the showcase, 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.
