SPRING 2017 SEASON INFORMATION

FOR PREMIER, BOYS ACADEMY, GIRLS ACADEMY, JUNIOR ACADEMY AND HIGH SCHOOL ACADEMY PLAYERS***

Sporting Kaw Valley offers goalkeeper training for all Premier and Boys & Girls Academy goalkeepers at no extra cost to the players.

We encourage all goalkeepers to take advantage of this opportunity. Goalkeeping is a specialized position that requires a lot of skill and experience. Most youth goalkeepers don't get enough specific training, so this program will make a huge difference.

A well-trained goalkeeper is skillful, confident, and enjoys the game!

Beginner Training Group: Playing the GK position for the first time or ages 10 and below
