We are super excited to add a GK component to our camp in 2023. Our GK lead Coach will be Danielle Mendez. She is the CSP Full-time GK Coach and spent many years at NCAA D1 and D3 schools
For our younger keepers, it may be their first formal introduction to serious goalkeeper training. The focus will be on handling, footwork, and all the technical components. We will break down the different components of the goalkeeper’s technical knowledge and tactical understanding - The primary tactical focus is on decision-making, reading the tactics of the game and organizing the defense. At the week’s end, each student will leave the camp a better goalkeeper, with the knowledge and tools to continue to improve throughout the year. Each day they will integrate with outfield players in our small-sided games.
For all campers, it will be an opportunity to train and play with other goalkeepers in a fun setting!

Sea Foam Stadium: 281 Hamline Ave. St. Paul, MN 55104
Sea Foam Stadium went from a vision of the athletic department to a reality when Mr. Phil Fandrei’s generous donation of $5 million on behalf of Sea Foam Sales Co. moved the project forward. Upon Mr. Fandrei’s gift, the University was able to successfully fundraise the entire cost of Sea Foam Stadium on behalf of benefactor donations.
The stadium is a year-round, multi-purpose facility that the football, women's soccer and men's & women's track & field team call their official home.
