Pells Keeper School (PKS) is a goalkeeper school that is geared to educate young motivated goalkeepers in all components of the game. Not only will your son or daughter be challenged each session, but they will be presented with difficult challenges, both physically and mentally. PKS will guide your child to success and make them enjoy the goalkeeper position as well as soccer. I will be a motivator and directing your child with proven methods to help them get past the hurdles that stand in their way. First, they must want to overcome them, and PKS can show the way. I also promise to focus on positives and reinforce great habits while tackling the components of the game that goalkeepers typically struggle with. I will be a mentor, a teacher, and a guide for success. Finally, every goalkeeper will work hard in each session, but more importantly, have fun doing it. The game and this position should bring challenges, joy, and excitement. Each goalkeeper will have fun training with me and the PKS staff.
My mission is to educate each goalkeeper with the proper skill levels in the areas of technique, tactics, and the physical and mental aspect of the game. Through my training each goalkeeper will have the fundamentals to understand the demands of the game, achieve greatness, and grow from it.Read More
