Camp Details


Program Overview

Premier Goalkeeping Academy would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the finest goalkeeping training camp around!

Both Coach Van Taylor and Bill Finneyfrock are former college All-Americans and professional goalkeepers. They see a need to provide a unique goalkeeping experience for the developing player.

Our one week / one location approach allows us to prepare for this one special week. Many other camps use multiple sites and a three day week.

If you bring us a willingness to work and a desire to learn, you will take home a guaranteed improvement in goalkeeping skills, knowledge of your unique physical capabilities, a fitter body, and an understanding of what it takes to achieve your goalkeeping goals.

If you have the commitment to become a better goalkeeper, please join us this summer for a truly unique goalkeeping experience.

Enrollment, Genders & Ages

Premier Goalkeeping Academy is ideal for
Boys & Girls ages 10 - 18!

We have a limited enrollment to ensure personalized instruction from the directors. We have also limited enrollment based on our facilities. To ensure you don’t miss out on this special opportunity enroll early.

You will have both Coach Taylor and Coach Finneyfrock on site giving their full attention to you the entire time you are at the academy. Many other soccer camps and goalkeeping schools have multiple locations in the same week where the director is not on site the entire week.
