In the modern game the goalkeeper plays a major role on the team. For this reason, this position requires particular care and attention. Legacy FC’s philosophy is to combine actual game situations with individual technical training to create the key environment to further develop your skills. Our curriculum is designed to improve the overall technical and tactical skills of the beginning as well as the advanced goalkeeper.
Our academy is lead by Tim Bergsma. Tim graduated from the University of Michigan, where he was a team captain and 4-year letter winner. While at Michigan, his team won a Big Ten Tournament Championship and advanced to the College Cup. Bergsma prepped at Southfield Christian High
School and was a 3-time all-state selection. He played club soccer for the Bloomfield Force, and won a State Cup.
Bergsma’s coaching experience includes coaching the goalkeepers for Davenport University Women's team, assistant Coach of Berkley High School Women’s soccer team, as well as coached for Elite Keeper Academy, 5-star goalkeeping, University of Michigan Men's soccer camps, Oakland
University soccer camps, Justin Meram’s skill camp, and Camp Shutout. He currently holds a USSF E license.
