Summer Fitness
 “It’s kind of fun, if you like that kind of humor.”Past survivor of Keeper Club’s summer conditioning program.
The Keeper Club's annual Summer Conditioning and Technical Program for goalkeepers preparing for high school and college soccer begins June 9 (week after U14-U18 tryouts) and continues at Dyess Park on Tuesdays and Thursday evenings (6pm-7:15pm) through August 13 (week before Select Camp). This is progressive curriculum for boys and girls 14 years and older focusing on the demanding "keeper work" that will help keepers compete at a higher level. Jim Walker again will direct the program and guest trainers will be invited to handle special assignments. For Dynamos and Cy-Fair Youth Soccer Club members, the fee is $100 for the entire summer program. Cost for non-Dynamos or CFYSC players is $150. A limited number of field players and underage goalkeepers will be accepted for this summer's program. There is a registration form available online that can be copied and mailed. For more information, email jwalker332@aol.com or call 281-217-1612.

The Pros
Patty Walrath, longtime Dynamos player, Keeper Club member, and highly-decorated goalkeeper for HoustonBaptistUniversity, has graduated and while holding down a position in sports administration at her alma mater, will play for the Houston Aces of the Women’s Premier Soccer League. Patty started and played the first half on May 22 when the Aces opened their season with a 4-0 victory over the Texas Titans. Patty won all-Southland Conference second team, Southland all-tournament team and tournament most valuable player and was declared HBU’s Female Athlete of the Year several weeks ago. While with the Dynamos, Patty performed with a team that played in Florida’s Orange Bowl tournament.
Honor to Henninger
Houston Dash goalkeeper Bianca Henninger was named Player of the Week in the National Women's Soccer League for her performance in a 1-0 victory over the Portland Thorn in week seven. She recorded eight saves, some of them critical to the victory, as she collected her second shutout of the season.
Rimando PK Saver
The scoring woes for Real Salt Lake and the LA Galaxy, traditionally two of the most attack-minded teams in Major League Soccer, continued as they settled for a 0-0 tie in a match whose start was delayed an hour by heavy lightning in the Salt Lake City area. The tie extended the Galaxy's unbeaten streak to five games, but it would have had three points instead of one if goalie Nick Rimando had not stopped Juninho's penalty pick in stoppage time. The shutout was the 118th of his career. Rimando's PK stop was his 15th in 36 attempts with RSL and MLS-best 24th save in 66 penalty kicks he's faced in his career.

Keep looking around. There’s always something you’ve missed!
Coach Flo is looking for a keeper who can tie shoes with gloves on.
Young goalkeepers should ‘”dress for diving” when attending training sessions, but ‘dress down’ for games. There is usually plenty of diving at training, and protective clothing—long-sleeved jersey and padded pants (long or short)—is recommended. There is no problem with novice keepers wearing knee pads or elbow pads, although neither of these body part play a part in diving. Since there is little diving in games, keepers are better prepared for quick movement if they wear only a jersey, shorts, and shin pads, covered by long socks. A prepared keeper should also carry in his bag a towel (in case of rain or sweaty hands), a second colored jersey, and a baseball cap or soft hat (don’t see this much anymore, but anything that works) for bright sun or lights at night.
