Goalkeeper Camps


Open to Boys & Girls 8U-14U Competitive Level Players

At Minneapolis United Goalkeeper Camps, goalkeepers will learn the technical skills needed to be successful with tactical, physical, and mental training.  It will include playing in the goal in game like situations, under the guidance of a goalkeeper coach, coaching the player from in the goal and not from the sideline.

Each camp lesson finishes with game like situations combining the strikers and goalkeepers. This will allow goalkeepers to play in 4v4 to 8v8 games throughout the camp.  Using small sided games in front of full size goals keeps the goalkeeper involved the entire time.

  • Play On the Line
  • Diving: Low, Medium, and High
