The FC Spokane Goalkeeping Academy is our own FREE in-house program used to develop sound goalkeeping principles and consistency throughout our club no matter which team our goalkeepers play on.

A combination of hard work, ethics and a good technical education will provide our goalkeepers with a solid foundation to become the best possible goalkeeper that their natural ability will allow. Consistently keeping the ball from crossing the goal line between the posts defines a successful goalkeeper.
