Program Description


This Program focuses on the Long Term Player Development (LTPD) Stage 3: Learning to Train and Stage 4: Training to Train.

The keeper academy will be run on an “invitation only” basis, with invited players evaluated by the CUSC keeper coach, either through regular training sessions/games, or keeper specific sessions offered (ie: professional keeper clinic, or the introduction to keeper classes).   Academy keepers will then participate in keeper specific training twice weekly for 20 weeks, in adition to occasional keeper specific work with their teams.  Academy keepers will, whenever possible, be obvserved and evaluated by our keeper coach during game play (mostly during friendly or tournament play). 

Only the strongest and most committed keepers will be selected for this program, and not all Cumberland Soccer Academy players will be chosen. 

Our Director of Goalkeeping, Vladan Vrseckyis a UEFA 'A' licensed coach and holder of the highly rated UEFA 'GK' Goalkeeper coaching license.   A former youth national teams member in the Czech Republic, he has played professionally for SK Dynamo CB and FC Pisek in the Czech Republic. 

Vlad is one of the most dynamic, qualified and talented goal keeper coaches in the province, and since joining the club in 2014 has already made a massive impact on the keepers in the club.
