GOALKEEPER RESIDENTIAL CAMP AT BREWSTER ACADEMY

Seacoast United Goalkeeper School (SUGS) Premier Residential Soccer Camp at Brewster Academy is designed to guide goalkeepers through all the major technical components of the position, instilling the skills, knowledge and confidence to perform optimally at their desired level of play.  This camp takes place at Brewster's beautiful campus on Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, NH.

The SUGS philosophy revolves around developing the keepers both mentally and physically.  The instruction and activities are designed to challenge all keepers both in terms of technique and decision making ability.  As always, along with learning we strive to ensure a fun environment and will provide a variety of activities that will help players develop a sound "keeper" mentality, refine techniques and even enjoy improving critical goalkeeper-specific fitness levels.

Seacoast United's goalkeeping program has produced more than 70 collegiate goalkeepers to date, including 20 at the NCAA Division I level including prestigious programs such as Duke, Virginia, Stanford, Boston College, and Northeastern University. The coaching staff is first class and has many years' experience producing the highest level goalkeepers.  This week is designed to improve your play and knowledge of this most important of positions.
