GK and Finishing Camp

Summer Goalkeeper and Finishing Camp

Keystone FC is excited to announce we are holding two Summer 2021 Goalkeeper and Finishing Camps. In order to best serve the needs of athletes across Central Pennsylvania these two camps will be held in the York and Mechanicsburg area   Our third year of running this camp will focus on the elements of success we had in the first two years while also looking to adapt and continue to find ways to mesh both goalkeeping and finishing to improve one another.

Goalkeeper is one of the most difficult positions to play.  Through our camp goalkeepers will be given specific instruction by Keystone FC's Goalkeeping staff.  Players will be grouped based on age and topics will be developmentally-appropriate on age-appropriate technique.  Topics that will be covered can include the following depending on age level:

Set position, basic and advanced handling, front smother, high balls, collapse diving, extension diving, re-stand, footwork, dealing with crosses, breakaways, tipping, parrying, angle play, communication, stealing ground, distribution, and 3 goal situations.

Finishing is a skill that can be learned/developed.  Players participating in Finishing camp will develop their ability to become a consistent finisher.  Throughout the camp players will be instructed on a variety of scoring techniques and placed in a number of scoring situations. Players will leave the week more confident in their ability to score the soccer ball. 

This camp is open to players no matter what position they play and is open to players both inside and outside of Keystone FC.

The Goalkeeper & Finishing Camp will be a 4-day camp that meets for one and a half hours each session. We will work to place players into groups of no more than 12 players. Smaller group sizes will allow our coaching staff the opportunity to focus on the individual player and improve their technique.

This summer's two camps will be held at Winding Hills Park, 900 East Winding Hill Road Mechanicsburg, PA  and Cousler Park, 1060 Church Road York, PA.
