CAMP REACT 2018

JULY 8-13, 

Directed by NEIL THOMPSON

LAKE FOREST COLLEGE

CAMP REACT is the camp where the goalkeepers that become elite attend. CAMP REACT will not only push goalkeepers to their limits but it will also educate the goalkeeper on roles and responsibilities of the position.

“HANDS DOWN THE BEST GOALKEEPING YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROVIDER IN THE MIDWEST” – NEIL THOMPSON 

Neil Thompson who is the founder of Big Cat Goalkeeping, currently works with the new Major League Soccer Club Los Angeles Football Club also known as LAFC. Thompson has coached the mens u19 National Team, US Training Centers, has guided players to professional clubs, youth national teams and he and his staff have guided 100’s onto the college level.  

 

What the Director has to say:-

“Every year we get better and better, both as players and as professional coaches. This year we have moved home! 2018 Camp React will now be held at Lake Forest College. The change in location is to keep the scenery around camp fresh and keep moving forward, as no two Camp Reacts are the same!

We are pleased to announce that Miguel Miranda of Sporting Lisbon will join us again at Camp React 2018! I welcome Miguel as he is not only a world class coach, coaching the likes of Ederson and Oblak but he is a great friend as well. 

2017 was a huge success for Big Cat Goalkeeping with Alex Budnik being the highlight of the year by flying the flag for the USA in the 2017 u17 World Cup, which took place in India.

Camp React will be special as always as we prepare goalkeepers to get to the next level.” -Neil Thompson

As Big Cat Goalkeeping believes in becoming more effective in goal, there will be time allocated to goalkeeping specific functional performance training ensuring all of our goalkeepers are ready for the season ahead.

Little Tigers

At Big Cat Goalkeeping we believe that every goalkeeper should have goalkeepers that they look up to. Due to this belief, our younger goalkeepers (Little Tigers) will train at the same location as our older goalkeepers. This gives the young goalkeeper a sense of what they are trying to achieve. It also builds the young keepers confidence as they mingle with the older keepers during demos, meetings and lunch.
