Goalkeeper Academy

Program Details

 

The 2019/2020 Surrey United Goalkeeping Academy will be held on Monday evenings on CAP #1. The program will include 16 weeks of sessions. The curriculum for the goalkeeping academy will be structured to consistently test and challenge all goalkeepers and give them the technical focus and instruction required for the position.

 

This program is open to goalkeepers in the U9-U18 ages. In addition to getting the opportunity throughout the season to participate in the Surrey United Academies to get additional shot-stopping practice in drills and game situations.

 

Our head goalkeeping instructor is Tyler Baldock. Tyler is a graduate of Carson-Newman College in Tennessee and played with the Vancouver Whitecaps FC from 2007-2009. In addition to being SUSC’s Head Goalkeeper Instructor, he is also Head Goalkeeping Coach for the SFU Men’s Varsity Team since 2014. He has coached goalkeepers for over 11 years in Surrey and the Lower Mainland and he is very excited about working with Surrey United’s young prospects again.

Key Features

 

Player Feedback Reports

 

All goalkeepers that participate in the SUSC Goalkeeper Training Academy program will receive written progress reports at the end of the program. This info is intended to inform the parents of their child’s progress in our program and also (most important) to inspire the players to reach new heights in their own soccer development.

$225.00 for 16 sessions, plus the one-time SUSC Academy kit fee of $60* see below. 

 

*The black Umbro Mark Knit training jacket and black BCSPL Academy t-shirt will be the mandatory kit for the program. If you already own one of the older black academy jackets then you do not have to purchase again.
