Fall Goalkeeper Training
Training with Coach Nick Jacobson, Director of Goalkeeping 

Nick is a former collegiate goalkeeper who is licensed with the NSCAA and has already shown an exceptional drive and enthusiasm for coaching young players and a clear passion for the goalkeeping position. Nick will be ably assisted by both Kenny Archer and Wendell Hannaford, longtime members of our coaching staff and licensed GK coaches also, and Emily Faust, a former Penn Legacy player and current goalkeeper for York College.

Sessions began on August 24 and for this fall, we are going to start with a slightly modified schedule as below (this will change very soon depending on how many keepers attend, the reopening of The Quad, daylight savings, and the return to the club of the school age keepers) Nick also plans to introduce a second optional night of training in the near future:

Where - Penn Legacy East Petersburg Campus
(in the area by the tree close to Field 4 ( see this map)
When - Thursdays. 6-7pm for u9-u11, and 7-8pm for u12-u15
Penn Legacy Premier & Travel program uniform orders have arrived and your team manager will be distributing them soon to those that ordered new full kits or fill in items. 

We would like to take this opportunity to remind all of you about the thought process that went into creating the Penn Legacy Badge that each of you proudly wears on your uniform. The image below also links to a pdf of the image which may be easier to read.
