Goalkeeper Training Program
Spring 2013

Welcome to the SMYS Goalkeeper Training Page. Goalkeeper Training Sessions are provide for all Goalkeepers within SMYS (this includes SMU/Travel, RecPlus and Rec). There will be a total of 30, one-hour goalkeeper training sessions completed this Spring by our Goalkeeper Coach Andy Gretton. These are considered "club-sponsored" GK Training Sessions and the club will compensate the GK Coach for these training sessions. SMYS GK’s MUST comply with the assignment schedule below. Training will be provided ONLY at the sessions designated for your training level and age-group as noted.

Under this GK Training Schedule, goalkeepers club-wide will be offered the following (club-sponsored) GK Training Sessions:

- SMU Travel
- U9 & U10 (4 Training Sessions)
- U11 & U12 (4 Training Sessions)
- U13 & U14 (4 Training Sessions)

SMU/Travel Goalkeeper Training
Parents of SMU/Travel Goalkeepers need to coordinate with their SMU Travel Coaches for the GK Sessions on Travel GK Session nights to ensure those players are attending GK Training. Travel Goalkeepers do not need to contact Coach Gretton in advance of training on Travel GK Training nights. You just simply attend on your night when your age-group is scheduled to train (see the detailed schedule), we need our Goalkeepers to go to training in order to improve on Goalkeeping skills.

-
SMYS RecPlus
- U8 & U10 (4 Training Sessions)
- U12 & U14 (4 Training Sessions)

SMYS RecPlus Goalkeeper Training
Parents of SMYS RecPlus Goalkeepers need to coordinate with their SMYS RecPlus Coaches for the GK Sessions on RecPlus GK Session nights to ensure those players are attending GK Training. RecPlus Goalkeepers do not need to contact Coach Gretton in advance of training on RecPlus GK Training nights. You just simply attend on your night when your age-group is scheduled to train (see the detailed schedule), we need our Goalkeepers to go to training in order to improve on Goalkeeping skills.

SMYS Recreation

- U12 & Younger (5 Training Sessions)
- U13 & Older (5 Training Sessions)

SMYS Recreation Goalkeeper Training
Coaches and parents of Goalkeepers in SMYS Recreation Program do need to coordinate directly with Coach Andy Gretton on which nights to attend. The Recreation Program has 10 of the 30 goalkeeper training sessions and Coach Gretton will assign your son or daughter to come to a specific session(s) within the seasonal training schedule (see the detailed schedule).
The reason for this process with the Recreation Goalkeepers is we want the training sessions to be of good quality, so we need to control the number of players at each session so that Coach Gretton is not overwhelmed with too many players to train each session. We prefer quality over quantity.
Recreation GK parents should contact Coach Gretton at
grettongoalkeeping@gmail.com to reserve spots on your designated training nights (see the detailed schedule).
