Goalkeeper/Striker Training

Goalkeeper/Striker Training

Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout September and October at Island Crest Park grass field.

In another break from the norm, bringing further innovation to youth player development, MIFC has hired Joseph Mondello as Director of Goalkeeper Tactics. Since the club's attacking playing style begins with and heavily involves the goalie, the club has decided to innovate how the goalkeepers are taught.

In this newly defined role, there will be a much heavier emphasis on actions that are in alignment with how goalies will interact with teammates within the team environment. These actions will not just be shot stopping actions; they will include distribution with feet and hands, resets such as goal kicks and communication.

Joseph will offer goalkeeping clinics on Mercer Island throughout September and October. These clinics are free and open to all MIFC goalkeepers and players ages 9 and up who want to build their skills and learn more about the position. Clinics take place at Island Crest Park grass field on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout September and October.
