DGK in Action: Fall/Winter 2017


The winter months in between club and high school seasons are the ideal time to focus on individual development and add goalkeeper specific training into your schedule. This is a time of the year when we typically have more time to address our position specific needs that we may not get as much attention during season in the team environment.

We just completed the Carolina Winter Camp in Pittsboro, NC last weekend, the first of three 2017/18 Dynasty Winter Camps. It was a great weekend of training full of saves and lots of smiles!

Next up is Atlanta on January 20-21, 2018 (a few spots still remain open!) and we will wrap up on March 3-4, 2018 in Sparks, NV. Both camps are open to male and female goalkeepers while the Nevada camp offers both a YOUNG GK Clinic (ages 10-14) and an ELITE GK Camp for more experienced older goalkeepers ages 14+. The YOUNG GK Clinic consists of two 2 hour training session (one each morning) creating a fun and competitive environment focused on developing a sound technical foundation for young developing goalkeepers while fostering a passion for the position. The ELITE GK Camp will consist of two training sessions (4.5 hours total/day) a day (4 total sessions) with a lunch/lecture in between to discuss tactical aspects of the position and cover the essentials of sound nutrition for athletes. Plan for weekend of fun and intense training at the Golden Eagle Sports Complex in Sparks, NV and maybe even some snow?!?


All camps are limited in size to 12-15 students to guarantee plenty of training and individual attention for each goalkeeper, so don’t delay registering if you are considering attending. If you are interested in registering please click on the banner above and/or call Tracy at 919-942-2903 if you have any questions.
