Goaltenders in this Elite Goaltending Program will receive on-ice training that will focus on the intangibles of goaltending. Including, advanced movement and balance training, situational awareness, and mental preparation. This program is for AAA & higher experience levels.
There are two focuses in this program, the first is developing advanced positioning, movement and fluid goaltending. This first focus is geared toward specific technical training where the little habits that goaltenders develop can be addressed and altered. The movement and fluid goaltending are repeated and then the shot component is added to reinforce good habits. Because goalies are not all the same each habit that isn’t efficiently helping their game will be mentored so that the proper habit is replaced. The second focus of this program is to effect change in the way goalies train. Too often goalies rely on shots in practice to get better. This habit is out dated and goalies will learn to train in a way that is highly repetitive and focused on each detail of the game. This is the culmination of all the phases of our goaltending program and will prepare goalies to compete at the highest level.
This is an advanced curriculum which is meant for elite goaltenders and these sessions may require approval.
