We're called Pro Player Goalkeeping for two reasons:

One, because 100% of our training curriculum comes directly from former 12-year pro player and pro coach, Hunter Gilstrap. 


Two, because we believe when you combine the Passion that comes from doing what you love with the Reps it takes to build the right habits, you get the Outcomes you desire.  That's our simple formula:  P + R = O

Pro Player is here for GK's of all levels and backgrounds, regardless of club affiliation.  We want to help as many GK's as we can.  Period.


We offer private lessons, group training sessions, camps and clinics for goalkeepers. 


One session, and you'll know why we're different from the rest. 

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9


Our Team Sets Us Apart



Owner & Head Coach

Goalkeeper education has been a passion of Hunter Gilstrap's since he was young.  Throughout his 12-year pro playing career and then during his time as a pro coach, Hunter was simultaneously building a reputation for developing elite youth GK's.  He started and operated the Pittsburgh Riverhounds Goalkeeper Academy from 2010-2021.  He also had collegiate coaching stops at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh.  His combined experiences led to an opportunity to work with US Youth National Teams in 2017.  After moving on from pro coaching, he started the GK4FREE Podcast as a way of providing valuable free GK content to those who may not have access.  Pro Player Goalkeeping is the next step in his journey.
