WE ARE

coaches & mentors

Even the best soccer clubs and programs have a tendency to neglect goalkeepers. We’re changing that. We started Columbus Goalkeeper Academy back in 2017 to give you the targeted training you deserve and the off-field guidance you need to get to your next level. We’ll make all of our knowledge available to you, including how to navigate through the world of being a goalkeeper.
