The Carthage Goalkeepers Camp provides special instruction for goalkeepers. Goalkeepers will train separately from the field players twice during the day, and have opportunities to display their skills in the evening games.

Campers will interact with coaches who will truly get to know them, developing the skills necessary for this demanding position. Goalkeepers will share the same exciting experiences as the field players in the resident camp. Goalkeepers will leave with a written evaluation, highlighting both strengths and areas needing attention. Tuition: $495 resident, $395 commuter; held in conjunction with the resident camps, with no additional resident fee.
