Recreational Goalkeeper Academy

The PRIDE Recreational Goalkeeper Academy is designed to give players and introduction into basic goalkeeping techniques and principles. The program is technically based and designed to give new and younger goalkeepers and look into the expectations and requirements for the goalkeeper position. There will be a combination of technical sessions with games inspired to spark the interest of young goalkeepers. The combination of the technical and tactical aspects of goalkeeping will provide our PRIDE goalkeepers with the foundation and the building blocks for goalkeepers to learn and progress within training and the game itself.

PRIDE goalkeepers will have a minimum of one age group-based session a week with the opportunity to attend extra sessions. Goalkeepers will have the opportunity to attend higher level session as they show the desire and ability of proficiency of age-level topics. The sessions will be run by Mike Archuleta, DOC of Goalkeeping, and assisted by male and female Division 1 and 2 Collegiate goalkeepers from the United States Air Force Academy, Colorado College, and UCCS. Local professional goalkeepers from the Switchbacks (United Soccer League) as well as from the semiprofessional indoor team the Colorado Blizzard. The PRIDE Soccer Club is committed to the highest level of training for our young goalkeepers.
