2021 Summer Camps

 

We are planning to run in-person summer camp in 2021 and have made a number of program changes in order to keep camp as safe as possible for our community. For more information click here for more information on our guidelines.

Our guidelines may be revised moving forward in accordance with state, local, and school guidance. The plan will continue to adapt as the situation around us changes.

*For those who stay for the afternoon, (Full Day camp is 9-3 pm) after lunch, goalkeepers will have a chance to apply their skills in scrimmages and fun shooting games with the outfield players. They will also have a chance to participate as field players in these games to help develop their foot skills, which are key to a goalkeeper’s success.

The Brit-Am  Advanced Goalkeeper Camp is aimed at players in eighth grade and above who are looking to prepare for the upcoming fall or high school soccer season. Keepers will train from 9 am to noon each day with a qualified, professional Brit-Am Goalkeeper School trainer.

The advanced camp starts each day with a complete dynamic warm-up followed by a technical warm-up where the keepers will  be using primarily their feet. From there they will go into handling and then onto the day’s topics which will center around the more refined points of the position. Throughout the week, coaches will cover tipping and deflecting, communication, dealing with crosses, set pieces and distribution. Additionally, keepers will receive plenty of touches and reinforcement of their basic goalkeeper skills such as shot-stopping, diving, footwork, angles and 1-v-1s.

The coaches will also hold classroom sessions where keepers can watch video and break down the position.

All keepers will receive a personalized player evaluation at the end of the week.



Camp Description

Brit-Am Goalkeeper School welcomes goalkeepers of all levels. Keepers will train with a professional Brit-Am goalkeeper coach. We provide a curriculum for all age groups and abilities to ensure your child gets the most out of his or her time with the goalkeeper coach and other goalkeepers. Keepers will cover topics ranging from but not limited to stance, footwork, basic shot stopping and handling, diving, distribution and passbacks, 1 v 1′s and positioning. All keepers will be shown exercises they can do on their own and will receive a personalized player evaluation at the end of the clinic or camp.

Every player/group that attends our camps will have a qualified professional head coach, who works with Brit-Am Soccer Academy throughout the year. Counselors will also be available to aid the coaches during all practice sessions.
