Driven By Player Development

HPFC Goalkeeper Development

The Highline Premier Goalkeeper Development program provides quality instruction with individual development as the focus. Goalkeepers will be trained in various aspects of the game: technical, tactical, physical, and mental. 


All Highline Premier players 8U-18U are welcome to participate.  Members of the Highline Select program are welcome as well.  Players will be placed in groups appropriate to their skills, to challenge them to advance their technique, and to achieve success in defending the Goal.

Goalkeeper Session Details


"Beginner Level"
 Goalkeepers are identified on the schedule as "Keepers-B".  Generally, this group consists of players between 9-12 years old.  

If a player has been playing the position for 1 year or more, they may be moved to the intermediate session at the sole discretion of our staff.  

"Intermediate Level" Goalkeepers. Generally, this group consists of players between 13-14 years old. 

"Advanced Level" Goalkeepers. Generally, this group consists of players between 15-18 years old. 

Locations for training sessions are released with the field schedule for all the teams at the end of each month for the following month. The goalkeeper website is updated as quickly as possible to reflect that schedule.  

For players as young as 8 and 9 years old, our policy is that players should be focusing on their field player skills as much as possible.  If a player this age want to attend the goalkeeper training sessions hosted by the Highline staff, they need to get permission from the Director of Goalkeeping and their head coach.  8 and 9-year-olds may not miss regular training sessions for keeper training.  

The Highline Premier Goalkeeping staff hosts goalkeeper camps for 8 and 9-year-olds  in 6-week increments hosted through HSA at the Highline Premier Friday Night Soccer Skills Clinics. We recommend those players in those age groups to consider those camps if they are interested in the goalkeeper position.  

If you have any questions, please contact our Goalkeeper Director
