Athena’s Goalie Clinic will focus on save technique, positioning in cage, footwork, and playing the pass. Goalies also get fun tips to help encourage improvement in communication with defense, play outside of crease, and field strategies. The goalie clinic will run concurrently with the attack clinic so the girls can work on skills individually and then be put to the test against some tough attackers!
