    • Monday-Friday goalies will have two 90-minute sessions daily, each with specific skills and goals.
    • Additional 1-hour session exclusively for individual goalie development.
    • Saturday session serves as a recap from the week and a chance to display enhanced skills during a final scrimmage.

  • Advanced daily power skating sessions to enhance agility in movement, recovery, mobility, and foot speed.

  • Specialized on-ice curriculum for the Elite Goalie Camp includes individual skill instruction and positional, situational, and game play with an emphasis on speed, flow & execution.

  • Train and perfect individual skills such as stance, movement, angle play, rebound control, and puck handling.

  • Learn save selection and technique. Learn exactly how to read, react, and even dictate what happens during an offensive attack.

  • Instant video feedback during the week from on-ice sessions.

This leads to a much greater understanding of the skill or concept in question.
