Here at NPSA, we place a high value on the goalkeeping position and we provide a platform and community for our goalkeepers to continually grow into their position. As the game of soccer continually changes, the goalkeeping position changes as well and we are fortunate to have a Goalkeeping Director who helps our keepers change with times. Thanks to the innovative mind of our Director of Goalkeeping, Keegan Rogers, our NPSA Goalkeeper Union has seen a tremendous amount of development and progress since its inception.
Keegan Rogers has had the unique pleasure of working alongside some of the top goalkeepers in the state of Washington for high school ages and in the college ranks. Keegan has been a goalkeeper staff member with the PSPL Surf Academy for over a year now and in 2016, he was also a mentor for the college goalkeepers at his alma mater Western Washington University.
Keegan Rogers is also a former professional goalkeeper playing overseas in Sweden and Denmark, as well as getting first team trials with the Portland Timbers, Seattle Sounders, and Phoenix Rising FC. His father Glenn Rogers was a professional goalkeeper for the Portland Timbers, and his younger brother Austin Rogers is currently playing professionally overseas.
