All goalkeepers in this age group will work specifically on “What to do“ game set situations, taking their goalkeeper training to the next level and imitating during training the real-set game scenario. The components of a Real Game Set Goalkeeper Training Session are very detailed and specific but most of all very realistic, plus relentlessly repetitive and very challenging to goalkeepers. Along with the coaches dialog on what and how to specifically react to a certain drill, the keeper is surrounded in what they see as their 6, 18 yard box and beyond on game-day.

Goalkeepers at this young age should have fun and totally enjoy playing soccer in goal. There should be no pressure on them at all, that is the first rule at our Goalkeeper Academy. However, we will have our younger students jump right into the role and understand all the minimum aspects of the goalkeepers true reason! They like the older goalkeepers will train through real game set scenario drills, using many coaching points and Q&A sessions, so that the keepers truly understand the reason of every training drill and when to use it on the field.

Yes! We have our own goalkeeper brand of goalkeeper gloves!
We have gone to a great extent to create the very best possible goalkeeper gloves on the US market today and keeping the cost for less than $80.00. In reality any of the major goalkeeper gloves brands that are using the same identical materials as our Zee Pro-Game 2.0 are selling their gloves for $120.00 “or more” a pair.

Parents and students that use our goalkeeper academy understand that it gives great advantages that regular club goalkeeper training can’t deliver. We are known for creating in every drill a real game-set scenario, so that the keepers understand in full the drill and can execute it better and faster when put in the same position on the field on game day.
If you think that your child can take his/her goalkeeping seriously and you’d like to see them take their goalkeeping to a high level then I suggest you contact us to receive and invite for a free academy session.

A First Look at The New Munin M-Station P10 Rebounder

I really love when the ZEE goalkeeper school receives professional products to test, many times even before they hit the market. Knowing that our organization is the first to test such advanced and quality soccer training tools is exciting to say the very least. In this case we tested the Munin M-Station P10, the smallest soccer rebounder for field players and goalkeepers that Munin Sports has ever placed on the market.

It comes out of the box totally assembled and ready to put on the field. While opening the boxes and handling the rebounder for the first time, you could tell it has been built to last and to take a serious beating!

You would think because of it’s smaller dimensions that the frame and rebonding net would be made out of lower quality materials. That is not the case! The frame, and all fixing/moving parts are made out of the traditional Munin Sports extremely resistant materials, those same standards that have made their products world famous.

The rebounder has 5 changeable positions, each position takes 5-10 seconds to adjust and locks securely in place. Each corner is equipped with a special rummer gripped unit that allows the rebounder to be used on turf or on a gym-type surface.

Not to our surprise the Munin M-Station P10 when tested by 2 goalkeepers throwing a size 5 ball on both sides, it did not budge an inch, it remained in place and did not need the use of pins or hooks to keep the rebounder in place. “This was a first!” The dozens of “Other-Brand” rebounders used at our academy of these dimensions have always needed the assistance of tools to keep the rebounder still and fixed to the ground. As you can see from the video, the rebounder never moves even in rough training situations!

Incredibly easy to transport (folds in seconds), this is an advanced soccer training tool that can be used by professional soccer clubs, soccer academies… all the way down to kids in a back yard!

Great job Munin Sports!

Follow the ZEE Goalkeeper Academy on Social Media

Let’s start with one very simple fact: every activity that wants to become popular needs a social media presence.
It really doesn’t matter if you run a small soccer shop or a MLS team. Social media is an essential piece of your marketing strategy.
Social platforms help you connect with your fans, members and customers, increase awareness about what you offer, and boost your reach around the country or even the world and not to mention for many…sales.
With 3.4 billion people around the glove using social media, for sure it’s not a passing trend. Our Goalkeeper Academy is present on the most popular social media platforms. Our reach for example on YouTube has grown rapidly in the past 12 months and since we launched our channel it became easy to see why video marketing is becoming more and more important. YouTube is an amazing free tool that has given us a worldwide reach

More and more online sports groups and organizations are using videos every day. YouTube has several advantages, one of these advantages is that you can start up a video channel on YouTube and post regular video updates that are entertaining as well as informational and that market your website and your product.

Another advantage to YouTube is that since 2010 it has become a very popular social media website and by developing a relationship with people on YouTube you can send them to your website to see in detail your services and what you can offer them. I’m ready to bet that many of you didn’t know that YouTube is the 2nd largest search engine worldwide (after it’s big-brother Mr. Google). That is perhaps the biggest advantage. If you’re ranked well on YouTube, then people will likely find your videos. We’re doing our best to do just that and it’s working out pretty well. We now have around 2,000 subscribers and videos are watched over 1,000 times at least.

Facebook is our second most active social media presence, with close to 5,000 followers and most of them within the United States. This social media platform isn’t a big thing among teenagers, it’s ore and more becoming a mom and dad thing, but in our case its what we want, we need to communicate with the parents of our goalkeepers!

Two billion people use Facebook every month to connect with friends and family and to discover things that matter. We offer something that needs parent approval so Facebook is a 100% Must-Be social media platform for our Goalkeeper Academy and to advertise manly our events such as Goalkeeper Camps and Clinics.

Feel free to check us out on Facebook

INSTAGRAM! 150 million people use Instagram every day and only 2.8% of users are outside the U.S, so it is an amazing communication tool for us that are US Based. Now hear this: Under-18-year-old’s use Instagram 42 minutes a day! WOW!!

We use this social media platform to communicate manly with our students or with other goalkeepers around the country. Currently we have around 2,300 followers and growing very fast. Instagram requires everyone to be at least 13 years old before they can create an account, but there are a dozen of my students under that age that are following the Goalkeeper Academy page. However Instagram is safe for Every age As they have a privacy option that works a lot better than other social media platforms and if you are having a private account then no one can see your pictures or anything what you upload.

Our Instagram account can be found by clicking here

We are also present on Twitter and LinkedIn, but at this time these two accounts are “in-the-works” and will need a little more attention for them to take off, but we’re working on it 🙂
