Why I love GoalLine Field Hockey
"GoalLine is a one of a kind goalie experience. It is a camp dedicated to goalkeeper specific training. The rep counts are high and keepers are constantly learning the basic fundamentals along with the most groundbreaking GK skills to enhance technical skills and tactical awareness in a keeper’s defensive 25. I love that the coach to player ratio allows for individualized coaching opportunities, tailoring every set to a keeper’s needs. There is no standing around waiting for your turn. Every goalkeeper is engaged throughout rotations.GoalLine creates an atmosphere for athletes of all levels to learn and leave with an enhanced skill set. My favorite thing about GoalLine is every player and coach comes with the intention of learning but without fail we end up having a blast throughout camp! "
