ANTC is a great camp for goalkeepers looking to advance to the next level. It is a highly competitive environment that will challenge goalkeepers to their limits mentally and physically. The timing of this summers ANTC program will assist many goalkeepers with the launch of their summer training and will assist them as they begin the preparation leading into their college season. Not to mention, I love the staff-student Keeper Wars games at the end of the week. -Siri Mullinix

As a former camper in the Challenge and NTC programs, I know just how tough and rewarding Tony's camps can be.  Every program SoccerPlus offers is great, but the ANTC program is the ultimate--the best coaches and the best goalkeepers in the most comprehensive and competitive training environment. -Nathan Kipp

For a goalkeeper coach this is the best of both worlds; the students are motivated and talented. Plus, I get to exchange ideas and interact with these other top coaches. It is a week I look forward to each year. -Lisa Cole
