As summer rolls around many goalkeepers will be taking some time away from Just4Keepers, Washington to go to Mt. Rainier, Westport Beach, Leavenworth River, or wherever to have fun. Of course, it’s always a good idea to keep up with your skills with a residential camp, or weekly session, or even just have a ball around to have a pass or a game with friends. But, these are Washington adventures every just4keepers goalkeeper to enjoy.
