Goalkeeper Training Program

Educating, Inspiring, and Developing  Goalkeepers...

Every session provides a professional training environment that is consistent with the evolving demands of the game. Goalkeepers will be physically and mentally tested by taking them outside their comfort zone. Weaknesses will be discovered and then strengthened, while strengths will continue to be perfected. There is a strong focus on fundamental development and building confidence. Each goalkeeper will learn to focus on components of the game they can control.

Vittorio Viarengo

Vittorio has played as a soccer golie in competitive teams for most of his life, from his up-bringing back in Italy all the way to when he moved to the US in 1998.
While he misses playing soccer tremendously, he is now discovering how rewarding it is to participate in his son Luca's own journey with soccer and is excited about the opportunity to help coach the Evergreen United team goalies. Vittorio believes that through team sports, kids learn valuable life lessons such as the value of sacrifice, supporting each other, fair play, and mutual respect. As goalies, he will teach them the specific fundamental techniques that sets great and reliable goalies apart from the rest and how to stay focused and fit for the game.

In his professional life, Vittorio work in a software company and has led teams of different sizes across a variety of disciplines, from software development to marketing.
