The Mission

At The Keeper Institute our aim is to provide young aspiring goalkeepers of all skill levels with the education needed to reach their dreams.  We believe that there is potential in everyone and our intention is to bring that potential to life.


 

The Blueprint

TKI utilizes a versatile group of experts in the fields of technical goalkeeper training, leadership, nutrition, strength and conditioning, and sports psychology to provide students all the necessary tools needed to grow, learn, and perform that their individual highest level.  TKI offers an unmatched, all encompassing training environment that delivers customized programs that are guaranteed to build confidence and take your game to the next level.   


The  Method

Goalkeeper is the most important position on the field, crucial to any team's success. It is a position that requires special attention and highly specialized training.  The role of the goalkeeper has evolved tremendously in the recent years, becoming a much more dynamic position.  Nowadays, goalkeepers must not only be great shot stoppers, but have the kicking precision of any outfield players, the ability to make decisions in an instant, the confidence to brush off a howler, an unshakable focus, and the leadership to effectively communicate direction.  Our method is to lay a strong foundation of basic fundamentals; developing all the technical aspects of goalkeeping is our first and primary focus.  While mastering the techniques of set shape, basic handling, footwork, distribution, angle play, diving, and crosses, goalkeepers will face game realistic and match-like situations where they are encouraged to make decisions.  TKI goalkeepers will be taken out of their comfort zones and placed in a challenging training environment where they will leave more confident and prepared for game day.  


The focus isn’t to cram as much information into one session as possible. The instruction is really concentrated on teaching things the right way and making sure we understand how and when to implement the skills we are learning into our game.
