Goalkeeper Training Will be Provided!

With over 20 college coaches working, sessions will be capped at 100 players to create a player to coach ratio of 5:1. The two hour session will consist of small group training with multiple staff coaches followed by 7v7 games in which teams will be coached by our college staff. Players will be assigned to 'teams' and given numbers to be worn throughout the session to assist staff in the evaluation process. Additionally all college coaches will be given team rosters, with individual player information and shirt numbers, to help track players throughout the clinic and their club team's Shootout games. Players should email/contact the listed coaches prior the sessions!!

*Goalkeepers will be trained by collegiate goalkeeper coaches, in a small group setting, and then integrated into the 7v7 games! Goalkeeper to coach ratio will be 4:1.

*Session times DO NOT conflict with any Texas Shootout showcase games and are OPEN to all rising Freshmen through rising Seniors. "Rising" means what grade the player will be in in the fall. For example, a current 8th grader is considered a "rising" freshman.

*We encourage players to write schools in attendance as this is a great chance to perform, up close and in front of excellent college programs

*Players may sign up for both the Thursday and Friday sessions

*PLAYERS WHO ARE NOT PLAYING IN THE TEXAS SHOOTOUT ARE ELIGIBLE TO ATTEND!! Per NCAA Rules, this clinic is open to any player, limited only by age and number of participants.
