PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES OF GOALKEEPING
DEALING WITH HIGH BALLS
My name is Alberto Ciroi. I am a goalkeeper out of Italy. I am 23 years old. I am playing for Duluth FC (NPSL) over the summer.
I have experience playing semi-professional soccer in Italy (4th division). I played at that level for a few years. I moved to the U.S. almost 3 years ago, in order to pursue a professional soccer career, and advance my academic career as well. I just earned my bachelor's degree in Sports Administration one year in advance from Baker University in Kansas, which was ranked #2 in the NAIA, at its peak last year. Thanks to a full ride athletic scholarship, in August I will start my master in Sports Management at Coastal Carolina University, where I will also play for one of the best NCAA D1 soccer programs in the whole country.
On my background beside the huge passion for goalkeeping, I also have some coaching experiences in Europe and in the United States as well.
I am looking forward to pass along all my knowledge, and to have a lot of fun playing the best sport on earth with you!
My name is Pietro Filacorda.
I am 23 years old and I am from Treppo, Italy.
I am about to graduate in exercise science at "Università Degli Studi di Udine" and I work as a goalkeeper coach for several professional academies in Italy.
This year I am part of the Duluth FC roster but my main job is to privately coach Goalkeepers in the area (including my friend Alberto Ciroi who specifically brought me here as a personal coach in order to get better and stay in shape).
I am very passionate about soccer and about goalkeeping in particular. I am doing my best to try to turn this passion into my job. I have been playing this sport since I was 6years old and I am still doing it at the amateur level.
The peak of my career as a player was when I got invited from AC Milan academy for a tryout when I was young.
After I graduate from high school I decided to focus more on building my coaching career and I started to study exercise science at the University of Udine (I am also working with them to develop a research about a new approach to the goalkeeper training).
At the moment I am a goalkeeper coach for the most important goalkeeper academy in my region called “Scuola Portieri Cortiula Grendene” and I also work for “Leonardo Calcio” youth soccer academy. In these 3 and a half years working for these two organizations I got the chance to get my inspiration and I was honored to work with the founders of the goalie academy whose are former professional players and actual professional coaches with coaching experiences at the highest level in Europe as they both have coached Serie A, Serie B, Lega Pro, 1st division in Malta and Switzerland.
Furthermore, I am the founder of the YouTube channel “Sherlock Gloves”.
Its purpose is to explain and talk about the role of the modern goalkeeper while also testing and video-reviewing Goalkeeper equipment and gloves.
I started this activity mostly for fun and it quickly became a real side job that gave me the opportunity to make personal connection and agreements with the biggest goalkeeper brands (Adidas, Reusch, Puma, Uhlsport, Keepersport, Nike just to cite the most important and many others...)
I am pretty sure that with the help of Alberto and my personal connections Duluth FC goalie camps will be an absolute success.
I am looking forward to meet you and to start working with you.
