Goalkeeper Academy

EAGLE F.C. Goalkeeper Academy

Eagle FC Goalkeeper Academy operates Fall, Winter, and Spring

At Eagle FC, we believe that, at the core of every successful team, there is a confident and prepared goalkeeper. Our philosophy is to build a solid technical foundation that benefits goalkeepers of various experience and skill levels. Deivid Chaves, our Director of Goalkeeping, brings energy, enthusiasm, and a wealth of  knowledge to our competitive goalkeepers.

Every competitive goalkeeper in the club playing on a Black, Red, White or Gray team, from U9 to U19, will have the opportunity to attend weekly training sessions with our Goalkeeper Director. Within this goalkeeper specific training environment, technique will be taught and perfected through repetition, constructive feedback, and positive reinforcement.  We hope to foster confidence through this approach while preparing goalkeepers mentally and physically to thrive in game situations. This unique environment also provides a peer group and “Goalkeeper Union” mentality within Eagle FC.

Each goalkeeper training session will feature the following:

  • Speed, Agility and Quickness
  • Technical Reinforcement and Repetition
  • Skill Building
  • Finishing Strong by simulating game situations and saves

Our Eagle FC Goalkeeper Academy operates fall, winter, and spring. There is no additional charge for our competitive goalkeepers to participate in the training. Moving forward we hope to also provide camps, clinics and add basic instruction as a part of our Futures program.

Fall and Spring Goalkeeper training will occur at the Sporting Hill Station fields.

For any questions regarding the Goalkeeper Academy, please contact Deivid Chaves via email at dchaves@eagle-fc.com .

“I like Coach Chaves’ training style. It is intense but enjoyable and Deivid is creative with his drills. I am excited that we (the other Eagle FC goalkeepers and I) get the opportunity to continue learning from him.” – Hannes Budde, Eagle FC 06B Black Goalkeeper
