Goalkeeper Academy - East

The Riverhounds Goalkeeper Academy uses modern methods and approaches to develop goalkeepers with the technical, tactical, and psychological components necessary to succeed in today’s game.

We accommodate the needs of young goalkeepers of all skill levels from beginner to college and professional prospects. Our high intensity training environment is designed to push every participant to the next level.

Please watch our intro video with program director Hunter Gilstrap to learn about the training offered to all young goalkeepers in the Western Pennsylvania area.

Riverhounds Director of Goalkeeping Hunter Gilstrap on Will Marshall:

"Will Marshall is one of the top emerging GK talents in Western Pennsylvania. He's served as a staff coach for our Pittsburgh-based Goalkeeper Academy for the last four years. Prior to his time on staff, I was able to work with him as a player in the GKA. Will has spent his college career playing for the University of Pittsburgh where he was a two-year teammate to the Hounds' newest goalkeeper signing, Dan Lynd. He's the perfect fit to spearhead the launch of the GKA East Program."
