PCU Goalkeeper Training

Goalkeeper Training Co-Directed by Brian Linne and Chris Guy

Being a goalkeeper requires special training and practice that cannot just be gained during regular team practice. PCU prides itself on providing top quality goalkeeping training that gives players up to 2 opportunities per week to train just as a goalkeeper.

We ask that all goalkeepers email Coach Brian/Chris and get on the GK Bonzi Team they can communicate directly with you, blinne@pcusc.org or cguy@pcusc.org.

U11 to U19 goalkeeper will receive a written evaluation from Coach Brian/Chris each year.

All Goalkeeper Training is held at Buckman Field and open to any of our club members at no extra charge. We encourage anyone that is or considering being a GK to attend these sessions.
