Summit Goalkeeping was founded in 2020 because of the drastic need for a quality Goalkeeper Academy in Calgary. Summit has since developed 34 goalkeepers into University & Professional settings.
The ultimate purpose for our programs is to develop lifelong goalkeepers. We want our athletes to remember Summit as a positive, competitive and fun experience that prepared them for their future.
Based in Calgary, Summit Goalkeeping is the pinnacle of goalkeeping development across Canada.
A year round professional Goalkeeping Academy offering Goalkeepers of all levels & all ages the opportunity to be coached and mentored to the very highest level.
Lead by former Premier League Goalkeeper Coach Jordan Santiago, all sessions are carried out by a team of highly experienced GK Coaches including 2 time Canadian Premier League Golden Glove Winner, Marco Carducci.
Summit Goalkeeping concerns itself solely with the development of the individual. Whether it is furthering a professional career, developing a young keeper, counselling a perspective college keeper, we believe that soccer can create a better life through many different opportunities.
