General Info About Goalkeeping

The Lou Fusz Athletic goalkeeping program provides year-round goalkeeper training open to the public. All GKs from all clubs in the St. Louis Metro area are welcome. We focus on teaching the fundamentals of the GK position at younger ages and progress into advanced mechanics at the older ages. We do hundreds of GK specific training drills to strengthen and condition the body for this position while helping build muscle memory for game-time performance, awareness, and decision-making. All goalkeeping sessions will be run by LFA Goalkeeping Director, Franco Carotenuto, along with his staff of professional coaches and highly regarded current/former collegiate goalkeepers. Carotenuto holds the United States Soccer Federation 'A' Coaching License, as well as, the USSF highest level Goalkeeping Certification in addition to his professional and collegiate playing background.
