Have you met PMSC's Head Goalkeeper Coach?

The PMSC is super excited to introduce Mike Girard as Head Goalkeeping Coach.

Mike Girard comes to the PMSC from Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. He moved to Vancouver when he was 15 to join Mountain United and train within Whitecaps Academy as well as Whitecaps Residency programs. Going on to represent BC in the U16 Provincial Program, then the following year representing BC again with his club team Mountain United placing 3rd. Continuing through the Residency Program Mike then went on to train with the Whitecaps United States Soccer League Side Whitecaps FC2 after finishing with them Mike then went over seas to train with German Sides VFR Garching as well as working with 1860 Munich U23 side. He has been with the PMSC for a year and bit now and we couldn't be happier!

Mike has been working with all our MSL goalkeepers and also our U8-U12 rec team goalies - the kids have loved it, and our regular team coaches have commented that they have seen significant improvements and confidence in the goalies after even one session.  Specialized goalkeeping training is something the club is looking at long-term so keep an eye out for our upcoming Goalkeeper Training Camps & Programs.
