Strikers & Goalkeepers Academy

This four-week course is dedicated to the craft of goalscoring and was designed by Tommy McMenemy, who is our Athlete Program Director as well as a Division I Mens Soccer Associate Head Coach.  (See his bio here.)

In the spirit of Liverpool FC's attacking style, this course is open and relevant to players in every position. It will be an especially valuable opportunity for forwards, wingers and midfielders looking to improve their goal productivity and supplement their team training sessions. 

Class size is capped at 12 field players and 4 goalkeepers per session to provide quality individual instruction and maximum opportunities for repetition.

The Striker Academy will work in collaboration with the Goalkeeper Academy to ensure realistic opposition in key training moments.  

The course will focus on technical instruction and repetition in the following areas:

  • Key finishing techniques from close-range

  • Shooting techniques from mid/long range

  • Importance of the first-touch 

  • Timing and angle of runs in and around the goal

  • Attacking the ball from wide areas

  • Finishing under pressure
