As one of Karen's youth coaches, I can honestly say that Karen was a very hard worker with a great attitude. As a result, she helped the Medford Strikers win State championships and tournaments across the country. I would highly recommend her without reservation. A great goalie with a great attitude and in my 12 years with the Medford Strikers the best female goalie in their history. -Len Imielinski

Many soccer coaches misjudge the value of a goalkeeper as a key ingredient to a successful team or just lack the time and skills to give them the attention they deserve. In many cases the goalkeeper becomes the forgotten player. Keepers' Connection was created to give each goalkeeper the time, attention and training that is essential for their development in this unique position. Our training focuses on helping each individual goalkeeper create a strong technical foundation. Training in age specific groups provides keepers an outlet where they can learn from one another and be surrounded by like-minded players. A competitive, yet friendly environment is created where keepers can learn from watching each other train and pushing each other to excel. Keepers will learn the importance of the fitness aspect of goalkeeping. Attention to superior physical conditioning specific to goalkeeping is just as important as any technical skill they can learn. Our main objective is to help each goalkeeper grow with confidence, be consistent in their play and help them realize their full potential. All these key elements are the philosophy that drives Keepers' Connection. We pride ourselves on developing the complete goalkeeper on and off the field, throughout their careers and throughout their lives.
