Huskies Host Elite Finishing And Goalkeeping Academy
Jan. 11, 2010
SEATTLE - The Washington women's soccer team, which has advanced to the NCAA Second Round in each of its past two seasons, will host an Elite Finishing and Goalkeeping Academy, with seven consecutive Tuesday night sessions starting Feb. 23 and ending on April 6.
The camp, run by head Lesle Gallimore and her staff - including U.S. U17 National Team goalkeeper coach and former National Team star Amy Griffin - along with members of the current team, will be held in the Dempsey Indoor Arena from 7:30-9 p.m. on the following Tuesday nights: Feb. 23, March 2, March 9, March 16, March 23, March 30 and April 6.
The academy, which costs $250, is for players between the ages of 14-18 who are interested in pursuing a playing career at the Division I level. With all sessions run by the Husky coaching staff, the clinics will emulate the style of training at the DI level, benefiting any player interested in playing collegiately.
Due to extreme high demand, the academy will be limited to the first 60 players to sign up on a first come, first served basis.
In addition to skill players learning finishing moves and techniques, UW associate head coach Amy Griffin will be running her Elite Goalkeeping Academy. Limited to 10 spots, Griffin will train and develop the same techniques that have produced the best of the best, such as U.S. National Team member and gold medalist Hope Solo, and the goalkeepers on the Women's U17 National Team.
