Goalkeeper Academy



Goalkeeper is the most technical position on the field. Our Goalkeeper Training Staff has years of experience coaching young goalkeepers; through these years, we have developed a technical prowess and approach that leaves goalies smiling, more confident and feared by opponents. We offer youth goalie training year round in our GK Academy (small groups) and private sessions. Training for:

  • Never-ever goalies 
  • Beginner, Intermediate & High School Goalkeepers
  • Elite Goalkeepers

You can expect our programs to be well organized, effective and fun! Sessions are catered to the needs of players in the group.

private goalie lessons

Scheduled year round based on trainer and player availability. Cost is $75/hour. Training in Prairie Village and Overland Park area.


Goalkeepers are something special! It’s the most technical position on the field, which means “just wing it” isn’t exactly an option. 


Summer 2022 camp is set for June 13-16, 2022. Camp registration opens in January, space is limited.

Finesse Soccer has provided my daughter (5th grade) the best goalkeeper training she could get over the past 1 1/2 years, and we plan to continue training with them! She has improved tremendously over this time and has become a notable player on her team. She also LOVES the trainers she works with. They are all experts who are personable, motivated, and fun!

We've been so impressed with Finesse! Our daughter is completing her fourth or fifth training session, and she has loved all of her coaches. Plus, she has really developed as a goalkeeper under Finesse's direction. Highly recommend to any player looking to improve skills in a positive environment. Our daughter leaves for clinic smiling and comes home smiling too. Thanks to Finesse, we're ready for High School in the spring!

My daughter is an almost 10 year old that wants to be a goalie. She's still in Rec League with her friends but the classes with Finesse give her the opportunity to get extra training in her position. Nina does a great job keeping it fun but also teaching her critical position skills. We will continue with Finesse even when she eventually makes the transition to Competitive soccer. They have a great program!

Our daughter Afton is a high school junior GK heading to college to play D1 soccer in 2018. Much of her skill development and increased confidence over the several years has come from her 1:1 trainings with Finesse Coaches Laura and Nina. They are knowledgeable, supportive, and really care about Afton as a both a player and person!
