Program Description

The Professional Keeper program is for the more committed keepers in the club who seek regular goalkeeper training for the duration of the season.  The sessions are designed to compliment the competitive/academy training schedule for as many GK's in the club as possible. 

Whether you are a seasoned Goalkeeper at Ottawa TFC, or a young player working hard to learn the position, this clinic will help you to both learn and sharpen your basics, and to work further into some of the nuances and details of this specialized position.  

Keepers in this program will be grouped by ability rather than purely by age.  Groupings will be determined by an evaluation process at the beginning of the program, and players may be shifted throughout the program based on development needs.

Unsure of your age group? 

Player Assessments:

The first few sessions of the program will serve as an evaluation period to sort out balanced training groups.  New keepers joining the program after regular evaluations will be evaluated during their first training sessions.  


The program will run for 18 weeks, starting in April. Specific session dates, times and location are listed below.  April and May sessions are subject to change for turf availability.  Starting in May, all sessions are on Tuesdays and Saturdays as per the below schedule.
