NCE Soccer has released tryout dates for their elite Winter goalkeeping program.
Tryouts are now open for young goalkeepers aged 10-15 in the New York Metro, New England and North Atlantic regions.
Eight venues will host 24 tryouts for boys and girls all hoping to earn their place on our prestigious 12 -week Winter GK Center of Excellence supplementary coaching program.
Head goalkeeping coach Lee Broster insists the standards are high and wants only the very best should apply.
Lee, said: “Goalkeepers are encouraged to express themselves not only physically but verbally. They learn how to repeat good saves time after time, to understand the role of a goalkeeper.
“We analyse mistakes rather than critique and work on the mindset of being a goalkeeper.
“The program teams all aspects of goalkeeping and all sessions are age and ability appropriate.
“We work in small groups with the emphasis on the individuals and that means more one-on-one coaching that they don’t get anywhere else.
“I am very passionate about goalkeeping and care deeply about goalkeepers and their development and progression. We provide open and honest feedback and providing goalkeepers work hard, remain respectful and humble they are welcome to what I believe is the best goalkeeper programs in America.”
12 Week Program
NCE Soccer’s Goalkeeping program covers a range of topics over the 12 week program including:
- Distribution with hands
- Distribution with feet
- Dealing with crosses
- Handling techniques
- Shot stopping
This supplementary coaching program runs for 12 weeks throughout the winter at our specially selected indoor venues.
Each COE GK session focuses on only one or two topics with basic handling forming an integral part of every 90-minute session.
This year, as well as coach Lee and his team of goalkeeping coaches, one of our star students Nicolette Pasquarella, will be working with the young keepers.
Nicolette has progressed through the NCE Soccer ranks and go onto enjoy trials at Manchester City, Manchester United and has now secured her place at Stony Brook University for next year.
Nicolette, said: “NCE is a highly competitive organization that can help you reach your goals.
“For me, NCE was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I wouldn’t trade my time and experience at NCE along with my future here for anything.
“Other players should consider NCE for so many reasons, the list goes on and on. The training and feedback you receive will help you attain your goals.
“If you are looking to play college soccer at any level, NCE can help you. The coaching staff sets up many showcases for players to play in front of college coaches of all levels.
“That kind of exposure is hard to get. I was committed prior to the showcases but the success is unreal. The staff really does do an incredible job.
“NCE also cares about the player themselves. It is a hardworking environment that pushes you to become a better player, but the coaches also know when to pick you up and motivate you. They are also so great with getting to know parents as well.
“I played in England I wanted to give back to NCE for the amazing opportunity. I want to share my experience with younger goalkeepers and show them that anything is possible with hard work and dedication. That is when I started my coaching career with Lee Broster. He has allowed me to create session plans and coach with him over the winter. I have learned so much by coaching because not only did I learn and am still learning to coach, it bettered me as a player.”
NCE Soccer will be hosting tryouts at venues across the New York Metro, New England and North Atlantic Regions.
