Keeper Fundamentals

Keeper Fundamentals Program

The program is designed to provide Wildcat players between 8 and 12 years old (U13 and below) with an opportunity to learn the basics of goalkeeping.   Ideally, Keeper Fundamentals is best suited for girls who are new to the position.  It is also great for those who are interested in trying the position and those who are playing it in rotation with other teammates.  Girls who are already full-time goalkeepers should participate in our regular goalkeeper training.

Kristin Voorhees Jacobs is the coach for this program. She is a graduate of Steinert High School where she is remembered as a three-sport star, onetime Spartan of the Year and 2010 inductee to the Steinert Athletic Hall of Fame.

No experience at keeper is required and there is no cost for this program.  Participants must register due to limited space.
