What to expect at your first session

Here is what to expect at your first training session. Upon arrival we will take a few minutes to get to know you and have you fill out a couple of liability forms.

Your first session is a training and evaluation session. We will be reviewing and running you or your goalkeeper through multiple foundational based technical and game like drills. This gives our staff an opportunity to assess where you are in your development as a goalkeeper. We try not to correct more than 2-3 areas of focus so that you or your goalkeeper are not overwhelmed.

This session will be hard but you will learn a lot! And it will give our staff a baseline of what you know and what you need to improve on. After the session we will notate your account and create a plan with our staff to help you develop. We may also recommend a specific training group that you would be a good fit for based on your age and skill level.

In addition you will be emailed an online form for you or your goalkeeper to complete. We ask that this is completed by the Goalkeepers and NOT the Parents. Parents may assist younger GKs if needed. This form includes questions about your goals and strengths/weaknesses, etc. We want to mentor you and help you reach your goals. We will schedule a 30-minute follow-up Zoom meeting to go over your goals and help you plan your training development pathway with RGA.
