GK Training & Philosophy

The GK player is a unique position in that is the last line of defense and the first line of offense for a team. At Palatine Celtic, we take great pride in teaching everyone this position at an early age so they are well rounded and are able to adapt by seeing the entire field. The information in the document below will help give parents a quick overview of our club philosophy of the position and the importance of it as a soccer player. We will encourage players who play this position throughout the game to communicate to their teammates, distribute the ball with their feet (pass) and hands (roll or throw) and be an option for a pass back for support to keep possession.
