BTP (Formerly Just4keepers of East PA) has been coaching goalkeepers in the area since 2010!
While focused on the serious and elite goalkeeper, the BTP training program is designed to work with goalies of all ages (8 and up), all abilities, for both boys and girls. Coaching key fundamentals at an early age and working on advanced techniques and tactics as they progress. The program is designed to ensure each goalkeeper reaches his or her MAXIMUM potential while enjoying every moment ‘Between the Posts!’
Our Academy groups are Age/Ability Appropriate. Our General Academy groups are for keepers grade levels 3-7, and our High School Academy groups are for keepers grade levels 8-12
BTP’s Academy is open to ANY Keeper. We love that we have keepers from multiple areas and clubs all working together and developing in our Keeper ONLY Academy!
Between the Posts has a very Progressive, Challenging and Fun curriculum. We focus each week on a topic that seamlessly continues the development from the topic of the previous week. Coaching goalkeeping one topic at a time allows for the development of solid foundations and stronger fundamentals. We coach at a very detailed ‘Micro-Technique’ level allowing for a more focused coaching experience and longer lasting results.
Our year-round program allows for repetition, muscle memory, increased confidence, improved leadership and reading the game. Any good goalkeeping coach will always encourage you to train as much as possible (with appropriate recovery periods) in order to master the position. Tell your club coaches about the BTP program. We are happy to work with coaches, schools and clubs alike!
Keepers have the ability to attend a minimum of 1 session per week up to 4 times per week. The training package you choose will dictate the number of sessions you can attend. To get the most out of our Academy, we recommend attending at least once per week. Sessions run year-round and are 1 hour long. We offer seasonal camps and clinics as well.
We currently have 4 Academy Locations in the following areas:
- Central Bucks County (Warminster, SMG Sportsplex)
- Lehigh County (Breinigsville, LVHN Sports Academy)
- North Montgomery County (Pottstown, 422 Sportsplex)
- South Montgomery County (Elkins Park, SoFive)
If you have a recommendation for a new academy location, or are a club looking for a Keeper Specific Clinic, please contact us.
The BTP program limits the size of each group to 12-15 goalkeepers.
(1 Coach to 16 Keepers – English Football Association Recommended Coach to Player Ratio)
Between the Posts Academy Sessions focus on working within a group setting, priding ourselves on being able to coach each keeper individually within that setting. This is a tried and tested method, it enables group learning, increased focus, group camaraderie and a well-supported coaching environment. Each session has two coaches in attendance at all times and sometime 3-4 depending on the number of keepers attending.
