General Info

The LFA Goalkeeping Academy presents the Shot Stopping School! This program is designed to help goalkeepers improve their shot stopping abilities and grow their goal mouth presence. Each session, goalkeepers will receive individual, position specific training with our professional GK Staff for the first portion of each session. Then participants will go head-to-head against age/ability level appropriate strikers (from the Fusz Finishing School taking place on the next field) for the remainder of the session. Participants will see hundreds of game like situations during each training session, improving the players' abilities when faced with these situations in real games.
