Lonestar is proud to offer the 2019 Goalkeeper Preparatory Clinic specifically for the aspiring goalkeeper, and aims to help develop the best goalkeepers in Central Texas.


Clinic Goals

During the clinic, the Lonestar goalkeeping staff strives to instill goalkeepers with the core skills and values in a competitive, educational, and fun environment. Your goalkeeper will be trained to hone their skills and techniques based on a daily curriculum that focuses on the technical building blocks of goalkeeping, as well as more advanced concepts including the fundamentals of positioning and tactical situations in a game.

    • - Develop the specific skills, traits, and demands of a goalkeeper in a focused, high-intensity training environment

    • - Build the confidence and mentality of the goalkeeper during games

    • - Inspire the next generation of goalkeepers in Austin and Central Texas to reach their highest potential in club, high school, college, or professional play.

In addition to training, goalkeepers are evaluated by Lonestar goalkeeper staff to help identify strengths, weakness, and areas of improvement to help them reach the top of their game.
