Goalie Advancement

All weeks, All birth years, Limited spots (4-12 available per week)



Our Goalie Advancement program combines the best features of goalie-only and team camps to teach young goalies the appropriate skills for their age/ability level and enhance the skills they already have.  Designated goalie coaches - with a minimum of college playing experience - lead your goalie through the week. 

Net-minders will enjoy:  plenty of personal attention with a 6:1 student coach ratio; two goalie-specific on ice sessions per day Monday through Thursday; specialized off-ice training; classroom/chalk talk and video replay sessions.  Each goalie will play in a daily scrimmage where one of the goalie coaches will be on the ice to give real-time feedback on goals, saves, and game situations. 

Goalies receive 22 ice sessions throughout the week.  Space is limited - only 4-12 spots available per camp.
