About the Program

MRFC Goalkeeping (GKT) is age-specific positional training designed to prepare youth goalkeepers for the modern demands of the position. Our comprehensive goalkeeping program includes three types of goalkeeper education:

  • premierGKT – our 40 week, year-around, flagship training program for registered MRFC Premier players. If you are currently at another club and wish to join premierGKT, please reach out to jake.potter@mtrainierfc.org>
  • seasonal GKcamps – available to all youth goalkeepers, these programs allow us to teach a specific goalkeeping topic or situation over consecutive sessions. Details under Camps and Clinics.
  • GKcompetitions – tournament style mini-games where goalkeepers compete against their peers, safely, outside of the traditional training environment. Details under Camps and Clinics.

Our Mission at GKT

  • EDUCATE goalkeepers, their teammates, coaches, and parents on the position’s importance, its function within team success and GKs ever-changing roles in each phase of play. Empower goalkeepers to reject stereotypes and watch out for harmful labeling around the position.
  • DEVELOP goalkeepers who consistently (1) affect gameplay in-possession (2) manage space behind the backline (3) control service into dangerous areas (4) perform safe and effective saves in-goal.
  • CULTIVATE a supportive and collaborative culture among our goalkeepers, where older goalkeepers mentor younger ones and graduates return to become trainers.

Words From our Director Jake Potter

Too often young goalkeepers are underprepared for the role and lack the confidence to perform consistently. Many find themselves isolated without consistent organizational support to turn to. Here we strive to create a training environment where goalkeepers come to grow, be brave, and explore solutions to problems they’ll see in games.

Goalkeeper Training Schedule

Goalkeeping Camps

Our seasonal goalkeeping camps will guide you in learning techniques and skills required to become a very competent goalkeeper. We’ll cover general skills, but most importantly, we step it up a notch with advanced skills: college level warmups, footwork, shot stopping, striker vs keeper, breakaways, advanced handling and more.
