The Placer United Soccer Club would like to announce our new Goalkeeping Program and coaches for the 2010-2011 Season.
Gene Duchateau has been named the Head Goalkeeper Coach for the Club. Gene brings a wealth of knowledge to this position having trained and coached goalkeepers for many years. He also brings playing experience as a past professional goalkeeper for a number of years. Gene holds a USSF ‘B’ License and the NSCAA Level II Goalkeeping Diploma.
Placer United is making a concentrated effort to develop our goalkeepers at a younger age. Gene will be working weekly with U9-U12 boys and girls to develop sound technique in all areas of the position. Additionally, Gene will be evaluating all of our goalkeepers, U9-U18 boys and girls, during league play and tournaments.
Matt Scamacca has been named Assistant Goalkeeper Coach for the Club for the 2010-11 Season. Matt also holds a USSF ‘B’ License and the NSCAA Level II Goalkeeping Diploma. Matt will predominantly be working with the U13-U18 goalkeepers in a fast-paced and informative training environment. Matt will use the Placer United Coaching Staff as assistants to help create the best training environment possible for our goalkeepers.
We are very excited for the continuity of the Goalkeeping Program under Gene’s and Matt’s guidance and the focus on the program for the 2010-11 Season.
