Goalkeeper Showcase


Elite Tournaments has partnered with Own The Goal:  Elite Goalkeeper Training (OTG) to offer a unique goalkeeper opportunity for goalkeepers participating in this year’s 2017 Baltimore Showcase.  Goalkeepers looking to get recruited will be able to showcase their talents in front of college coaches at the OTG Goalkeeper Showcases. 

OTG will offer three (3) Goalkeeper Showcases for the U15-U19 goalkeepers on Saturday, November 25th and Sunday, November 26th.  In game situations, goalkeepers typically have limited opportunities to show the range of skills necessary to succeed at the next level.  The Goalkeeper Showcases are a unique opportunity for your goalkeeper to demonstrate their talents in front of college coaches.  Each Showcase will include goalkeeper specific training elements--shot stopping, distribution, 1v1s, and crosses.

Showcase Information

  • Saturday (11/25): 11:00 AM; 3:30 PM 
  • Sunday (11/26): 11:00 AM
  • Cost: $90 (includes OTG Gift)

Showcase Registration: Register for the Goalkeeper Showcase

*There will be registration on-site if spots are still available. 

-All registration fees are non-refundable; Coaches attendance is not guaranteed; OTG highly recommends that goalkeepers participating in the Showcase contact the colleges/universities in advance of the Showcase to let them know you will be attending; Parents are welcome to videotape the event as it will show a broad range of goalkeeper skills that can be passed along to college coaches.
