Mastering these skills builds success in the game!

Goalkeeping Foundations. Goalkeeper training: covering ball-handling and shot-stopping from the ground up. Teaching technical aspects of this important position. Open to anyone wishing to learn or advance their goalkeeping skills, no prior experience needed.
We welcome Coach Chuck Breton, founder and technical director of Samba PDA to bring added player development and technical skills training and games for our HWYSA players. We’re particularly glad to be able to support goalkeeping for any player wishing to learn. Coach Breton began Samba PDA in 2006 in New Hampshire.
