Goalkeeper Training Academy

Fall Goalkeeper Training Academy


Goalkeeper Training Academy Program Overview

The 2021/22 Surrey United Goalkeeping Academy will be held on Monday evenings at Cloverdale Athletics Park on Turf Field #1 beginning September 20, 2021. This program includes 16 weeks of weekly training sessions. The curriculum for this program is structured to consistently test and challenge all goalkeepers and give them the technical focus and instruction required for success within the position.


This program is open to all goalkeepers or aspiring goalkeepers in the (U9-U18) 2004 - 2013-born age groups. In addition to regular, weekly training sessions, participants will be provided with opportunities throughout the program to participate in the Surrey United SUDA and HPA Academies for additional exposure and training in shot-stopping, drills and game situations.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic SUSC will implement their SAFE RTP Curriculum, which  will correspond with the guidelines & restrictions from ViaSport, BC Soccer and Canada Soccer. While we are close to climbing out of the pandemic restrictions, SUSC must still follow the contractual instructions from the City of Surrey. The overall program will operate within the SUSC Return to Play Plan. The current RTP criteria allow for open physical contact and fun game play.


Our Goalkeeper Training Academy Head 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; Tyler has also been the Head Goalkeeping Coach for the SFU Men’s Varsity Team since 2014. He has coached goalkeepers for over 12 years in Surrey and the Lower Mainland and is thrilled to continue working with Surrey United’s young goalkeeper prospects again this season.
