Goalkeeper Training

The Riverhounds Goalkeeper Academy uses modern methods and approaches to develop goalkeepers with the technical, tactical, and psychological components necessary to succeed in today’s game.

We accommodate the needs of young goalkeepers of all skill levels from beginner to college and professional prospects. Our high intensity training environment is designed to push every participant to the next level.

Please watch our intro video with program director Hunter Gilstrap to learn about the training offered to all young goalkeepers in the Western Pennsylvania area. Hunter is the Riverhounds Academy Director of Goalkeeping, GK coach for the Riverhounds Pro Team, and was recently named to the staff of the US Boys U-14 National Team for their Domestic Training Camp in Portland, OR.

Staff coaches will include professional goalkeepers Dan Lynd (former Rochester Rhinos and Pitt) and Mike Kirk (former Rio Grande Valley Toros and La Salle University)-- plus veteran GK coaches TJ Cherry and Will Marshall (West Chester University and Pitt); not to mention others with professional and high-level college goalkeeping experience.  Eight weeks of training allows us to explore all aspects of the position: technique, tactics, and what it means to be the "modern goalkeeper."
