To say we are delighted to announce our first GK camp in the USA is an understatement. The camp will focus exclusively on goalkeeping and will be hosted on Monmouth University’s new water-based turf, where World Class GK coaches will be providing cutting edge GK instruction.
We are also very excited to announce for the first time this summer, David Harte, a two-time FIH GK of the Year, Kampong Hockey Club GK and Irish Men’s National Team GK, will be joining David Williamson (USA Women’s National Team Assistant Coach) as a Head Clinician on the SOS coaching staff.
David Harte isn’t the only Olympian and World star on staff, he’s joined by..
Jackie Briggs, former US Women’s National Team GK, Two-Time NCAA National Champion GK with the University of North Carolina (UNC), and current assistant coach at UNC.
Alesha Widdall, former US Women’s National Team GK and University of Massachusetts GK, and current assistant coach at Cornell University.
Please check out David Harte’s Wiki Jackie‘s Wiki & Alesha’s Wiki for a list of awards and accolades that are too numerous to list here!
