USA Field Hockey has added a “Goalkeeping Workshop” to the workshop series. Teaching goalkeeping and developing and managing goalkeepers is a common challenge. This three-hour workshop will help coaches teach the correct goalkeeping skills and provide suggestions on working with multiple goalkeepers in a team setting.

The focus of this workshop will be on teaching skills in a developmentally-appropriate way. New and experienced head and assistant coaches of youth, club, high school and collegiate athletes will be well-prepared to take their athletes and teams to the next level.
