GXFC Goalkeeper Institute

The goal of our GXFC Goalkeeper Institute is to develop the top goalkeepers in Georgia under the direction of Coach Paul Campbell.  Coach Paul trained the MLS Keeper of the year in 2013 (Donovan Ricketts, Portland Timbers) and the #1 Pick of the Major League Soccer SuperDraft, Andre Blake.

Acceptance in the GXFC Goalkeeper Institute will be by invitation only.  There will be special evaluations during tryouts. 

Training will include two weeks in the summer.  Weekly training will occur on Friday's.  Keepers will be broken into Beginner and Advanced based on their skill level. 

Each GK will be required to purchase gloves, keeper pants and a ball.  There will be 4 topics, with each topic taking up 2 training days. Topics are Catching and receiving, diving, High ball and crosses, and distribution and the back pass.

Formalizing the Goalkeeper Institute was a significant step forward for our players in the Fall 2016-Spring 2017 year.  We are very excited about the new goalkeepers who will enter the program this year.
