300 plus goalkeepers attend Camp Shutout


Over the last five days, the world's largest soccer camp for goalkeepers has taken over Stevens Point. Stan Anderson's Camp Shutout has brought more than 300 dedicated goalkeepers to the Portage County Youth Soccer

Complex. Anderson

founded Camp Shutout in 1989, starting with just three goalkeepers. In it's 26th year, the week-long camp has goalkeepers in attendance from 14 different states, and even campers from Canada and as far away as Sweden.

Between the youth and advanced divisions, the athletes are learning and skills from more than 60 trained staff members, some with professional goalkeeping experience.

"This week, Stevens Point is the mecca of goalkeeping in the world," said Anderson. "There's elite goalkeepers here. All the things that the up-and-coming goalkeepers saw Tim Howard do, it's what all these guys are working to do in their game. We've got big time guys here that will be pros."

Camp Shutout started Sunday and runs until Saturday afternoon.
