About Stan

Stan Anderson will be conducting Camp Shutout for the 29th consecutive year. This year will mark the 17th year in which he will offer Camp Shutout The Advanced Sessions for High School aged goalkeepers.

Anderson, a top-flight coach of goalkeepers at all levels, has been training goalkeepers for over 33 years. During that span he has coached countless goalkeepers that have gone on to accomplish amazing things (pro, college, etc.).

Some of these accomplishments include:

  • win more than 30 state championships in three different states
  • gone on to Division 1 soccer programs (over 200 keepers)
  • made the final 16 in the NCAA Tournament
  • won a NCAA Division 1 national championship
  • performed in Major League Soccer
  • has gone on to compete for his country

Most of the aforementioned ‘keepers attended Camp Shutout as a youth goalkeeper, many for multiple years, and then worked hard to achieve their individual and team success.

Anderson has devoted most of his time to the goalkeeper position and has been a guest clinician for the IHSSCA (Illinois High School Soccer Coaches Association). Stan spent 15 years as the oldest boys age group head coach in the Wisconsin ODP system. After 10 successful years at UWM, five resulting in NCAA Tournament appearances, Anderson moved on to Marquette University as a Associate Head Coach. Anderson then moved on to Loyola for the 2012 season and then spent three years coaching at the University of Wisconsin with John Trask and Keith Tiemeyer. He also worked with the Chicago Fire Academy for 5 years. During this time, Anderson earned a USSDA National Championship, spent time with the First Team, earned a final four USSDA appearance and coached in the sub15 LigaMX/MLS tournament championship match at Azteca.  Anderson now coaches for FC United, a member of the USSDA based in Northfield Illinois.

While coaching at UWM, Anderson coached his keeper, Grant Fernstrum, to national acclaim as Freshman All-American following the 2005 season. Matt Pyzdrowski, a 2009 Marquette graduate, is with Helsingborgs IF (Sweden’s Top Flight). Anderson played collegiately at UW Parkside where he rewrote the record books. Until the 2000 college season he held or shared numerous national goalkeeping records including most shutouts in a season and most consecutive shutouts – thus the name – Camp Shutout. He achieved All American status, played in the Senior Bowl in Las Cruces, NM and played one season professionally with the Dayton Dynamo of the NPSL.
