MPS goalkeeping program (6+ years)
MPS provides a week long program for those players who dedicate their time to keeping the ball out of the net. The MPS Goalkeeping program allows individuals to benefit from expert instruction relayed by professional goalkeeping coaches. Improve handling, shot-stopping, footwork and distribution in an environment where only one position on the field counts. Each day will have a major topic but all sessions will incorporate footwork and handling techniques (the basis of all goalkeeping). One exciting aspect of the camp will be the daily Goalie Wars competition. Here is a chance to test your shot stopping and distribution skills against other goalkeepers!! These goalkeeping programs are intense, demanding and the sessions are designed to make each goalkeeper work to the best of their ability and to push them a bit more.
All MPS Vacation Programs are delivered by MPS coaches with vast experience in soccer coaching and are excellently supported by the MPS Technical Department who help deliver the cutting edge Soccer eyeQ and iSoccer training components daily.

For 2013, all soccer programs that run during the school vacations will be between one and four days. As a result, any vacation program, including one day clinics, do not qualify as a recreational camp under the Department of Public Health 105 CMR 430.00 Minimum Standard for Recreational Camps for Children (State Sanitary Code, Chapter IV). However Mass Premier Soccer will continue to comply with local Board of Health organizations to ensure the health and safety of any and all participants and will perform the necessary documentation where required and requested. All Mass Premier Soccer coaches are CORI and SORI checked both in the USA and where applicable their home nation. All Mass Premier Soccer programs will be directed by a Mass Premier Soccer employee who is both First Aid/CPR qualified and has a minimum of two years’ experience as required by 105 CMR 430.000.
