The Wildcat / Striker Goalkeeper Camp is open for boys and girls ages 8-17. This camp is a new, fun camp focusing on the uniqueness of the two positions and offering specialized technical training. UA Head Coach Tony Amato, along with staff, will work closely with anyone interested in scoring goals; developing shooting and finishing technique to become effective goal-scorers. UA Assistant Coach Paul Nagy uses his experience as a former professional goalkeeper to provide premier training to goalkeepers specifically. Goalkeepers will work directly with Coach Paul on shot stopping, breakaways, dealing with crosses, distribution, and communication. Instruction will continue after technical training of the specialized groups with small sided games to execute and practice what they learn.
CAMP LOCATION: The Wildcat Striker / Goalkeeper Camp is held where the UA Soccer Team plays - Murphey Field at Mulcahy Stadium. It is located at the corner of Plumer Avenue and 15th Street, adjacent to the University of Arizona Drachman Track. Click on the 'Facilities / Directions' tab for more information.
