Goalkeeper Program

NCFC Youth's Goalkeeper Program is lead by NCFC Youth Director of Goalkeeping and NC Courage Goalkeeper Coach, Nathan Thackeray along with Assistant Director of Goalkeeping, Xavier Audergon.

Program Details

The Goalkeeper offers position specific training to all goalkeepers involved in our Classic, ECNL, and Development Academy programs, as well as offering an introductory program for goalkeepers in our Juniors program. All goalkeepers are provided with a minimum of two sessions per week in addition to their respective team training sessions during the season.

The program also provides:

• Goalkeeper Periodization
• Goalkeeper Methodology and Curriculum
• Goalkeeper Evaluations
• Goalkeeper Player Handbook




Curriculum

Curriculum includes individual technical, tactical situations, and position specific development. In select sessions we provide goalkeeping classroom sessions covering analysis, positioning, communication, and more. The Goalkeeper program is challenging, high-level functional training environment for advanced goalkeepers with aspirations of playing at an elite level.



Player/Parent Testimonies

World class quality program. Nathan continually raises the bar and maintains the highest standards and expectations of his goalkeepers. Any goalkeeper wanting to play at the highest levels, should be so lucky as to train and play within the NCFC Goalkeeper ranks.
-Jeanne Howard (NCFC Youth Goalkeeper parent)

The NCFC GK program was the best place for me to develop and prepare for the next level. Nathan and his staff helped me improve daily with specialized sessions that pushed me against my peers and the high standards expected.
- George Marks (NCFC Youth Goalkeeper)

Whether it be the coaches, the sessions, or the culture, I have nothing but positives to say about my time with the NCFC GK program. Every day, I looked forward to training knowing that I was going to a fun environment that would challenge and stretch me to reach my full potential.
- Marz Josephson (Former NCFC Youth Goalkeeper, UNC-Chapel Hill)
