All of our goalies will work one on one with our Goalie Instructor each morning, with a specialized goalie program with experienced shooters to further develop each goaltender's technique and style. All goalies will also receive an additional 1.5 hours of daily afternoon ice, to receive shots from players in practice/game situations to enhance their pressure saves "Preparing each goalie to be the team backbone"

We will fully analyze each student's skills (Players & Goalies) in a different daily drill, reinforcing their positive techniques and quickly correcting the areas of improvement. Through the use of Pro Split Screens, "Cut-Out Comparisons", Spot Light Isolation and our telestrator and audio instruction, we feel that every aspect of our student's skills will be thoroughly analyzed - all recorded to a Flash Drive ($20.00 choice).
