No. 1 National Training Center for Goalkeepers

The No.1 National Training Centers for Goalkeepers will provide a comprehensive and stimulating Goalkeeper specific training opportunity. For over 47 years the No.1 Soccer Camps have provided the most inclusive, comprehensive and pertinent Goalkeeper training in the country. Founded by Dr. Joseph Machnik, the No.1 Goalkeeper Camps were the first of its kind to offer specialized training in the most important area of the field, the 35 yards in front of the goal. The alumni, players and coaches who attended the No.1 Goalkeeper camp is without equal. Numerous goalkeepers-male and female have gone on to play in the World Cup, internationally, professionally and collegiately, ours is a successful list unmatched by any camp organization in the world.

A primary reason for this incredible record of success is our staff of accomplished professional goalkeeper coaches who consistently aspire to research, dissect and then design pertinent training sessions. The demand on the modern goalkeeper as played by the likes of Steffen, DeGea, Allison, Neuer, Bardsley, Harris, and Campbell is much different than even five years ago. The “Goalkeeper of the Future “as taught at the No.1 Soccer Goalkeeper Camps is here now! The No.1 Goalkeepers Camp has always provided a forward thinking curriculum and in 2021 we are once again putting modern methodologies to the test, where they matter most, on the field-35 yards from the penalty area. You are unique and possess a unique skill set, our goal will be to accentuate your strengths and encourage continued growth through an intensive goalkeeper specific environment.
