Goalkeeper Training

Heat United Winter 2018/2019 GK Training

Heat United provides GK training in each season. We believe that goalkeeping training is important for our goalkeepers. The position requires training that must be specific to the skills required for every goalkeeping.

During Heat United Soccer Club's Goalkeeper Training sessions, goalkeepers will focus on specific physical, mental, tactical and technical elements of the position, including crosses, footwork, diving, distribution, angle play, playing behind various defensive formations and more.
