What is Puck Goalie Camp?
After speaking to our community of adult goalies, we realized that they were a ton of goalie school out there for kids but there wasn’t much coaching available to our weekend warriors. There was no help for the goalies out there playing once or twice a week in beer leagues across the city. We wanted to change that.
Our camps partner up with local goalie coaches to focus on getting goalies to understand the fundaments and techniques of modern goaltending. We often take an afternoon on the weekend to offer an great on ice and off ice training geared towards adult goalies. The camp is divided into groups based on skill so the camp is both for beginners but also long time goalies that would use a fresh set of eyes on their game.
Our camps often focus on the following:
Stance and Body Positioning – to maintain a simple foundation to move from
Technical Footwork – for the most efficient movement path pre and post save
Pivoting and Rotation – effectively utilize core to establish angle and positioning
Tracking – to effectively see pucks in and out of every save
Butterfly Principles – Take away 70% of scoring opportunities with proper butterfly positioning
Hand Positioning – Learn how to make hard saves look easy with simple arm and hand positioning adjustments
