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 🙂

ZEE – Select Sports Winter International Goalkeeper Camp – December 28, 29, 30 2019. Port Orange, Florida.

The ZEE International Winter Goalkeeper Camp (sponsored by Select Sports America) is a very special experience for GK’s from ages 8 to 18. Our goalkeeper school has had the pleasure of working with keepers from youth to collegiate levels and from all over the United States. Because of the names of the goalkeeper coaches working the camp, we can anticipate that this truly will be a unique and an amazing experience for all the goalkeepers involved. The coaching staff that we have put together has no rivals!

This is our main winter season event and we can’t wait to get out there at the Coraci Sports Complex Stadium in Port Orange to start working with the 40+ goalkeepers that will reach the event from all over the Southeast of the United States!

This camp costs $175 and included in that price you will receive a ZEE Soccer Academy official training jersey and a pair of ZEE Goalkeeper Gloves.

It is a fact that we can put more equipment on the field than any MLS program. Our inventory of training tools is the largest in the US!

Why is it camp called “International”? The coaches that we have selected for this amazing 3 day adventure come from 3 different continents: Europe, South America and North America. The coaches have been involved in soccer in 14 different nations. This gave us the inspiration to call our Winter GK-Striker camp “INTERNATIONAL”.

The camp is for all goalkeepers ages 8 to 18, looking to improve their skill set and their tactical and positional knowledge. Our top goalkeeper coaches will be working with the campers to ensure that the training will be challenging, cutting edge and most of all informative.

Goalkeepers: Each of the 3 days of camp, our goalkeeper coaches will introduce and improve on a new technical component that is a -must- for today’s goalkeeper. These skill sets include, specific keeper footwork, positional play, ball handling, re-distribution, “new-mode” shot-stopping and a series of split second decision making situations. Also a very strong psychological component that will build confidence and communication in goalkeepers of all ages.

Check out what happened at the ZEE Summer Goalkeeper Camp Lake City Florida

The ZEE Goalkeeper Academy was up in Lake City Florida this June 10-12 to host a Summer GK Camp at the Colombia Youth Soccer Association. The location was Southside Sports Complex, a 20 acre, 5 full size soccer field complex that can host any kind of soccer event.
This is our third camp in this location and every time the number of the campers just gets bigger and bigger!

This time around we had the opportunity to work with 24 goalkeepers ages 8 to 18 for a total of 3 days. The training curriculum was very advanced, including a session per group per day of advanced footwork.

It is great to travel out of Central Florida and discover new talent.

Like said, at this camp we covered all areas of Goalkeeping through out the three days. Every goalkeeper was evaluated during the sessions, to assure that every goalkeeper was getting the training they need to succeed in their goalkeeping. At ZEE we believe that the modern game demands that Goalkeepers be astute not only in the goal, but on the field as well and that is why we teamed up with Daytona State College bringing with us to this camp their players to assist in the footwork training.

We will be back at Southside Sports Complex in Lake City, Florida in mid October for the Columbia County High School goalkeeper clinic and then next Januarry 2020 for the ZEE-CYSA winter goalkeeper camp.
