Goalkeeping Training

Goalkeepers that train with the Jersey Knights can expect a comprehensive program that emphasizes the skills necessary for goalkeepers to master if they are to advance towards goalkeeping success.

The Goalkeeping Program operates under the direction of Jersey Knight Keeper Coach, Tom Herd and his staff. In addition to monitoring progress throughout the program, Knight’s goalies are trained and evaluated throughout the year to ensure steady progress.
