If you have a goalkeeper, you need a goalie coach. It really is as simple as that. There are field players and there are goalies, and they are as different as the army and the air force. Your training hasto be different if you are going to be prepared to do your job. Once you realize your keeper has to have specialized training, the next question is which coach you choose. Any coach can line kids up and run drills, but Coach Marcelo is different. He has been there at the highest levels. He knows what it is like to stare down a break away striker focused on winning a game or what it is like to be on the line for a penalty kick. He also knows what it is like to save the day. It is that game proven mental focus and ability to react to dynamic situations that he passes on to your aspiring keeper. He will instill a level of confidence in them that they are prepared to do the most difficult job on the pitch. As a goalie parent, it is also an investment in your peace of mind that your keeper is prepared to face whatever comes their way. Unlike many coaches who command and control their athletes and stay critical or aloof, Coach Marcelo has forged a personal connection with my son, and I see him building that same connection with the young keepers coming up through the program. He has even attended games to both observe and encourage my son in real world situations. Coach Marcelo has taken my son from field player to an award-winning Varsity Goalkeeper who is excited to be able to take his goalkeeping to the next level in college this fall. Let Coach Marcelo give your keeper the tools they need to become their best!
