Our teams at Legion FC Chicago are encouraged to ensure goalkeepers are a part of the game. We emphasize our goalkeepers to play with no fear and utilizing them as part of the game starting at the youngest ages. The program focuses on foot skills, which are as just as important as hand skills for the goalkeepers.
The Legion FC Goalkeeper program is designed and conducted by Coach Chris – former professional goalkeeper with more than 30 years experience. In 2017 he became a U.S. – National Champion with Levski Chicago . We strive to provide high quality goalkeeping training for all ages and levels.
Our goal is to develop goalkeepers focused on physical, psychological, tactical, technique and skills of goalkeeping; specific warm-up, footwork, handling, distribution, diving, shot-stopping, 1 v 1, decision making, dealing with crosses, and making the game-winning saves are included in the regularly scheduled GK training curriculum. Training sessions are structured so that they are fun and challenging for both novice and experienced goalkeepers.
