Most college soccer programs carry three – at most four – goalkeepers on their roster. Spots are hard to come by, and it's even harder to break into the starting XI for a prolonged period of time.
So how does a young 'keeper draw attention from college soccer coaches and stick out on the recruiting trails? To answer that, New England Soccer Journal has solicited answers from eight local college coaches across men’s and women’s soccer, plus all three divisions.
The below input is designed to function as a resource for aspiring college soccer players, hearing directly from some of New England's most-successful coaches. Such information is available at ID camps and such, but often not in one condensed location.
This installment is one part of our new recruiting series, which will act as a resource for aspiring student-athletes who seek a home at the next level. Answers present and future relate to on-field and off-field matters.
