All goalkeeping will be done based on the player's ability, not their age. We believe that it is important to train these players appropriately, and will not do activities that are too advanced for the player.
Please make sure each goalkeeper brings a ball and is dressed appropriately.
- Catching and handling the ball (becoming more familiar with the ball) and footwork (the key to the save).
- Collapse diving; How to position the hands and catch the ball, the correct body position when attacking the ball and the power that is necessary to make the save when diving.
- More catching and handling, however, distribution will also be incorporated such as: throwing (overhand, rolling, side armed) and kicking (punting and drop kicking).
- Power diving and shot stopping, even some angle play. This will be similar to collapse diving except the goalkeeper will be getting off the ground a bit more based on their level of play. An introduction to angle play will be presented to the goalkeepers.
- Dealing with crosses, both early and late. Timing is so important especially when under pressure and this will be our focus. Bending the run, proper catching, and organization of backs.
- More catching and handling, plus footwork (ladder training and banana hurdles for quickness and agility).
- Breakaways and shot stopping. Staying aggressive and building confidence to make the save.
- Last time to train for the season! Small sided games; team handball, goalkeeper wars, 3v3 games, etc. Tons of goalkeeper training!
$25 of each registration is non-refundable. No refund will be given after the first game of the season. Letters of credit may be issued at a pro-rated amount after the first game of the season and are good only for the following season's registration. Registrants who are unable to be placed on a team by Kansas Rush will receive a full refund.
Process: Parents will be given a refund request form, which must be filled out completely and returned to the office manager. It will then be submitted to the club's treasurer. Refunds may take up to thirty days to receive.
Returned Check Policy:
A $25 fee will be collected on all returned checks, in addition to the amount owed from the original check. The total amount should be submitted to Kansas Rush within 10 days of notification of the returned check. Failure to pay the fees within 10 days of notification will result in the cancellation of the registration.
