“Immersion” into the Best
Goalie School on Planet Earth
Currently 2 Spots Open
Camp rating :: one-to-five
A note from EuroTour. This is a rating provided by our Dutch camp partner. We personally would rate the SOCIAL aspect a “5+” for U.S. goalies, as you are immersed into an environment where you live, train and play with others from Europe and around the globe. Very special and unique on its own.
“You’ll train at your own level, but together in small training groups, with other motivated goalies from around the world – under the watchful eye of myself and my top staff of goalie trainers.
“From your posture and balance, to your dive or how to best hold your stick, to footwork and kicking – not a single thing is forgotten. During the Drijver Goalie Camps all that matters is improving your goalie skills! We make this happen!”Martijn Drijver
Renown in Europe, as goalkeeping coach, Martijn Drijver is called the “Coaching Guru” and has been active in three Olympic Games, five European Championships, three World Championships and ten Champions Trophies. Highlights were the Olympic Games in Beijing and London. In 2008, Spain won the silver medal, thanks to the eminent goalkeeper Quico Cortez, trained by Martijn. In 2012 he accompanied the keepers of the Dutch team, which also won Olympic silver. Also at club level Martijn has contributed to the successes. As goalkeeping coach, he was involved in fourteen league titles and seven European club titles.
Several national teams have Martijn as goalkeeping coach on their staff in recent years. How it work includes in the national men’s teams of the Netherlands, Spain, Malaysia and Ireland and in the women’s team from South Africa.

“I learned more here in 6-days than I have at my club in 6 years!”Heather, MD - GK
